Sleep apnea is much more than just bothersome snoring. It is a serious medical condition that can negatively impact many aspects of your well-being, from intimacy to heart health. If you are displaying one or more of these symptoms of sleep apnea, seek treatment from a sleep medicine specialist:
- Heavy snoring

- Morning headaches
- Episodes of breathing cessation during sleep
- Unusual daytime fatigue
- Trouble concentrating, irritability, and memory problems
Dr. Scotch serves as the medical director of a local sleep laboratory in addition to caring for patients at Scotch Institute of ENT. If he suspects that a patient has sleep apnea, he may perform a sleep study at this sleep laboratory, after which he will carefully review the results and design an appropriate course of treatment. Depending on the specifics of a patient’s diagnosis, Dr. Scotch may recommend a CPAP/BiPAP device, a custom oromandibular appliance, or in a severe case, surgery to adjust jaw position or remove enlarged tonsils or adenoids.
