Did you know that 90% of sleep apnea cases go undiagnosed each year? Yet the sad part is that this sleeping disorder is a major trigger for more serious problems like diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Luckily, a dental surgeon by the name Avi Weisfogel is changing this narrative.
Sleep apnea is a silent killer that often goes unnoticed until its destructive effects begin to manifest. Avi Weisfogel, a trained dental surgeon has dedicated his life to creating awareness about this medical condition stressing on the urgency of treating it in its early stages to prevent adverse symptoms.
Avi formed the organization Dental Sleep Masters where he leads a team of fellow doctors in diagnosing and treating those exhibiting symptoms of sleep apnea. Dental Sleep Masters is an umbrella of trained sleep and general physicians who organize sleep labs in different places to educate and treat patients suffering from sleep apnea. These physicians are also joined by dentists like Avi to provide further clinical support and to come up with treatment models that successfully diagnose and treat sleep disorders.
Besides leading this umbrella of dedicated physicians, Avi Weisfogel also dedicates a big part of his career in researching new treatment methods for sleep apnea. This research on advanced treatment procedures has led to the discovery of more user friendly techniques that eliminate the discomfort patients once suffered. The previous noisy disruptive machines and uncomfortable facial masks have been replaced by what is now called the THN Sleep Therapy system.
THM Sleep Therapy is already approved by the FDA, and clinical trials carried out already show it is a worthy replacement. Such technological advancements in medicine is part of what builds Avi’s passion to continue his campaign on sleep apnea. To him, it means that patients can now be more responsive to the campaigns with a willingness to be diagnosed and successfully cured from sleep apnea and its related conditions.
Avi Weisfogel also runs an active personal blog through which he continues to educate the masses on sleep apnea, the silent killer that often goes undetected. Avi is also an avid philanthropist and has contributed to many charitable organizations like Operation Smile.
