Conditions We Treat

There are many conditions that can affect your sleep—with snoring and sleep apnea being two common culprits. Not all sleep disorders are connected, but in many cases, one problem can be a symptom of a larger concern. For instance, snoring is often a symptom of sleep apnea. 

To help you further understand the symptoms you or a loved one may be experiencing, we have provided details on the different sleep disorders we treat. Here at Mass. Eye and Ear, we have a special focus on sleep disorders associated with problems of the upper airway, such as sleep apnea.
