Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a Serious Medical Condition Left untreated, the associated ill effects of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) on your health can devastating even deadly. For those currently using or facing the use of CPAP, you have an alternative solution that addresses the core cause of OSA – frequent airway obstruction, and allows you to achieve restorative sleep. Experts and patients agree; when used properly and consistently, CPAP is an effective management tool for sleep apnea.

We are a highly-specialized, highlytrained, board certified medical team dedicated to the surgical treatment of obstructive sleep apnea using a proprietary and safe outpatient procedure called Get2REM ® . Get2REM is both curative of the disease and significantly reduces comorbidities associated with untreated obstructive sleep apnea.
Straight Talk about Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) OSA 101: The basics OSA is caused by an anatomical obstruction during sleep to the normal flow of air from the upper aero-digestive tract to the lungs. Learn how sleep apnea occurs on our Web site: www.sleepapneasurgicure.com. OSA is exacerbated by excessive weight, anatomical variations of the neck, throat, the presence of tonsils/adenoidal tissue and other factors. The interruption of airflow causes disruption of REM-cycle sleep – that portion of sleep, which is necessary for normal restoration of neurological function. The metabolic consequences of frequent disruptions may include, increased risk of heart disease, stroke, chronic fatigue, cognitive delays, lack of energy, Type 2 diabetes, lack of sex drive and more.
