Surgical management of patients with obstructive sleep apnea.


Similar to my clinical interest, I have dedicated my research career to advancing the surgical treatments for obstructive sleep apnea. The first step in this mission is to better diagnose the site of obstruction in natural sleep to allow for site-directed therapies. In addition, I seek to study the effects of surgery on important clinical outcomes associated with obstructive sleep apnea.
