Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee

Radio Show for December 11

Posted on 11 Dec 2011 - 8:56 AM by Dr. Brian Wind

We’ve got a special guest in the studio this week—Dr. Bill Gross, an otolaryngologist, commonly known as an ear, nose, and throat (or ENT) doctor. Dr. Gross is one of the several ENT doctors who work with our sleep practice, but he is special in that he is one of the few folks in the world doing transoral robotic surgery using the DaVinci robot to treat sleep apnea.

The Sleep Doctors are talking with Dr. Bill Gross about transoral robotic surgery for sleep apnea and other types of surgeries he does related to sleep disorders on today’s show.

Sleep in the News

On the topic of surgery for sleep apnea, the Today Show recently did a piece on the very type of surgery our guest, Dr. Bill Gross, is doing in Murfreesboro—transoral robotic surgery for sleep apnea. There are only a very few surgeons doing this type of procedure, and one of the other surgeons involved in this type of treatment is featured in the Today Show segment – she is practicing in Pennsylvania. You can see the Today Show segment at the link below.
