Eye on Health: New way to treat sleep apnea
Sleep apnea prevents millions of Americans from getting a restful night’s sleep, but it can be cured. Just ask Philip Mattair.
“I did my six-month checkup at the sleep clinic and came out with flying colors,” said Mattair. “Not one snore.”
Mattair had reached his limit after his continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine failed to cure him of his condition. But thanks to Beacon otolaryngologists Dr. Erin Kevern and Dr. Andrea Gentile, and a simple but effective outpatient procedure, Mattair now enjoys a quiet and restful night’s sleep.
“It’s not just the patients that love it,” says Dr. Gentile. “Their bed partners love not having that CPAP in the room at nighttime.”
