Dr. Jordan C. Stern (Doctor Profile)
What is the best treatment for sleep apnea?
The treatment that works best for the patient, says Dr. Jordan Stern, who is the founder and medical director of the BlueSleep comprehensive sleep apnea and snoring center in Manhattan. Sleep apnea affects close to one-third of the population in the U.S., yet 90 percent of those with the condition remain undiagnosed. Untreated sleep apnea is associated with daytime sleepiness, memory problems, loss of sex drive and serious medical conditions such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. At BlueSleep, Dr. Stern offers convenient home sleep testing (using a small handheld monitor) and all treatment options for patients, including custom-made oral appliances, in-office procedures to control snoring and CPAP (a breathing mask) if necessary. Oral appliances and in-office procedures are often successful in patients who have failed treatment with CPAP. Find out more at www.BlueSleep.com.
