Highland Hospital offers 'Inspire' device to help sleep apnea patients

March 2019
Inspire Device“Selective upper airway stimulation, or ‘Inspire,’ is different from other procedures for obstructive sleep apnea because it can improve the tone of airway muscles during sleep,” said Sveta Karelsky, M.D., Chief of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at Highland Hospital and Associate Professor of Clinical Otolaryngology at the University of Rochester Medical Center, who performs the procedure. “Because of this, patients who are good candidates for Inspire typically have very good outcomes when it comes to treatment for their obstructive sleep apnea.”
