Sleep Surgery Program

A leader in the surgical treatment of sleep apnea and other sleep-related issues

A good night's sleep is essential for good health and overall well-being.

If you aren't sleeping well, you may be at higher risk for a variety of health problems, including high blood pressure, obesity and cardiovascular disease. You may also suffer from daytime sleepiness that affects your job performance, relationships and overall quality of life.

If you have, or think you might have, obstructive sleep apnea or another issue affecting your sleep, sleep surgeons at Rush can help. Our experts are committed to pinpointing the cause of your sleep problem and finding the best solution for you, whether that means surgery or simply helping you use your CPAP more effectively. In fact, Rush was among the first in the nation to perform Inspire Therapy, a groundbreaking upper airway stimulation treatment for both simple and complex cases alike. Our goal is to dramatically improve the quality of your sleep — so you can get the rest you need for good health.

Additionally, the Sleep Disorders Service and Research Center includes experts in psychology, neurology and pulmonary medicine. The team consults with many other specialists at Rush, including sleep surgeons, to ensure optimal care for patients.

Excellence in sleep disorders treatment

Coordinated care

Patients with sleep apnea often have other sleep, or ear, nose and throat problems. When you come to Rush for a sleep evaluation, we won't just treat your sleep apnea; our sleep surgeon partners with ENT colleagues and other Rush specialists as needed to address all of your interrelated health issues.

Surgical expertise

Our sleep surgeon is dedicated to helping you find the right procedure to address your individual needs. Rush offers a full range of surgical procedures, including minimally invasive approaches, for people who can't tolerate CPAP.

A leader in Inspire therapy

Our sleep surgeon was among the first in the U.S. to offer Inspire therapy and continues to be a leader in its use — with impressive results. One key to Rush's successful outcomes: We're one of only a few centers worldwide using microscopic dissection — a technique that provides enhanced visualization for more precise implantation — for Inspire surgery.

When it's more than sleep apnea

If you are suffering from a combination of symptoms, including sleep disturbances, persistent sinus pain and pressure, breathing problems and/or coughing, you may benefit from the one-stop approach at the Rush Sinus, Allergy and Asthma Center.

The center, the first of its kind in the Chicago area, brings together specialists from allergy/immunology, laryngology, pulmonology, rhinology, sleep medicine and sleep surgery to care for people who have co-existing sinusitis, allergies, asthma and/or sleep apnea. When you have more than one of these conditions at the same time, effective treatment requires the expertise of more than one specialist. Our team coordinates all of your care, so you can get the relief you need to lead a full, active life.
