Doing weight loss surgery is a high-tech treatment for people suffering from sleep apnea. The sleeve gastrectomy procedure that I perform has helped resolve sleep apnea in many patients suffering from this disease. Imagine never having to wear a sleep mask again! This very effective treatment for sleep apnea I can now perform through very small incisions called laparoscopic surgery. The majority of my patients are able to go home in one overnight stay following this type of weight loss surgery. Many have even gone back to work within a week of recovery.
