Sleep is a pillar of health. Sleep-related respiratory conditions can cause you to stop breathing during sleep, leading to excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue. The Northwestern Medicine Sleep Surgery division, the first of its kind to be established in Illinois, is dedicated to improving your quality of life by helping you get a better night’s sleep.
A multidisciplinary sleep surgery team works closely with Northwestern Medicine Sleep Health Centers to treat obstructed breathing, sleep apnea and snoring with leading-edge therapies based on comprehensive research. Our research program seeks a better understanding of obstructive sleep apnea, with a goal of developing additional treatment approaches.
