The MUSC Snoring Clinic is dedicated to issues related to sleep-disordered breathing. Patients with sleep-disordered breathing are seen at the MUSC Snoring Clinic at Rutledge Tower, East Cooper and the North Area.
Snoring and sleep apnea can lead to problems far more serious than the disruption of bedroom harmony. Sleep-disordered breathing is associated with high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke. The condition also increases a person’s risk for automobile accidents.
The MUSC Snoring Clinic is a unique multi-specialty medical practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-disordered breathing. The team is staffed by a sleep surgeon, a medical sleep specialist, a dental sleep specialist and a facial plastic surgeon.
Patients receive a comprehensive assessment of health risks associated with their condition; an individualized treatment strategy to reduce long term risks, eliminate snoring and improve quality of sleep; and ongoing reassessment of their condition and progress using objective and validated measures in order to ensure the most positive outcomes possible.
