Sleep apnea is a common problem that disturbs sleep and can be very stressful on the heart. Dr. Schubkegel works with sleep specialists to provide a surgical option when standard treatments aren’t working. If a CPAP machine isn’t for you, these advanced surgeries can be a huge relief. However, while the cure rate is high, surgery isn’t the only option, and it isn’t for everybody. Efficacy depends on the patient’s particular condition, so Dr. Schubkegel works closely with every patient to fully understand their condition and plan the best possible treatment approach.
