Helping Sleep Apnea Patients

If obstructive sleep apnea is keeping you awake at night, you may be interested in a new option offered at the Mercy Sleep Center.

Mercy is one of  the first hospitals in northeast Ohio to offer TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS) to treat sleep apnea. TORS is an innovative, minimally invasive technique that allows the physician to access areas of the throat with the robotic surgery system. This allows for  fewer complications, shorter hospital stays, no visible scars and faster recovery than traditional surgery.

To learn whether you may be a candidate for TORS, call 330-458-4180.
