Sleep Apnea and Surgery
Sleep apnea is a significant problem in the U.S., one which has spawned a significant cottage industry. The number of medical devices designed to reduce, alleviate, cure and reverse sleep apnea is staggering, although not every item on the list has passed the FDA’s strict guidelines.
