Dr. Brittany Greenbaum of Summit Healthcare Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) is now offering Inspire therapy, a breakthrough obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treatment option for those who cannot use Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy.
Inspire works inside the body with a patient’s natural breathing process to treat sleep apnea. Mild stimulation opens the airway during sleep, allowing oxygen to flow naturally. The patient uses a small handheld remote to turn Inspire on before bed and off when they wake up.
How It Works
Inspire is an alternative to CPAP that works inside your body while you sleep. It’s a small device placed during a same-day, outpatient procedure.
When you’re ready for bed, simply click the remote to turn Inspire on. While you sleep, Inspire opens your airway, allowing you to breathe normally and sleep peacefully.
Dr. Greenbaum received her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine in Glendale, Arizona. She completed her Otolaryngology, Head and Neck at Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Fall, Ohio.
