Sleep Apnea & Snoring Center in Georgetown, Texas

The Sleep Apnea & Snoring Center at Georgetown ENT was established to diagnose and treat adult and pediatric patients suffering from sleep disorders.  Sleep apnea and snoring are disorders that occur as a result of obstruction in a patient's upper airway (nasal cavity and throat).  An ENT physician is a surgical specialist trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the upper airway.  Dr. Franklin is an ENT surgeon and board certified in sleep medicine.  Therefore, not only can Dr. Franklin diagnose sleep apnea but he is uniquely qualified to offer both medical and surgical treatment options for the patient.

Patients with sleep apnea or snoring complaints are fully evaluated.  In office endoscopic evaluations are performed.  This helps identify areas of obstruction in the upper airway leading to reduced airflow during sleep.  These areas of reduced airflow, if surgically corrected, may potentially resolve snoring or mild sleep apnea.
