Tests & Treatments

  • Sleep specialists at Rush in Chicago perform sleep studies and prescribe CPAP therapy to relieve symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). They also offer a variety of treatment options for those who cannot tolerate CPAP.
  • Palatopharyngoplasty, originally known as uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), is the most common type of sleep surgery for people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) caused by excess tissue in the soft palate (located toward the back of the roof of your mouth by your throat).
  • Sleep surgeons at Rush offer advanced treatments for obstructive sleep apnea and other conditions that affect your breathing and ability to sleep. 
  • For people with obstructive sleep apnea who cannot tolerate CPAP, upper airway stimulation therapy (e.g., Inspire therapy) may offer an innovative alternative. It is a surgically-implanted system that monitors your unique breathing patterns and provides just enough stimulation to contract the throat muscles to keep your airway open. Sleep surgeons at Rush are among the first in the U.S. to offer this therapy.
