Dr. Coutras says...

Steven Coutras obtained certification in the new board in Sleep Medicine in 2008, 20 years after obtaining certification in Otolaryngology. After arrival at West Virginia University in 2010 he began to actively develop the program for the surgical treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. He treats adults with both the time tested as well as the newest procedures so that WVU is now the leader in West Virginia in the obstructive sleep apnea surgery.

He also began introducing the newest procedures for the treatment of children with obstructive sleep apnea who failed tonsillectomy, making WVU one of the leading centers in the US.

Dr. Coutras says...

We specialize in the surgical treatment of obstructive sleep apnea for those failing CPAP. This begins with a complete evaluation of the upper airway to locate the specific site(s) of obstruction. Once the primary site or sites of obstruction are identified, the specific surgical procedures targeting the obstruction are formulated into a treatment plan. These may include any of the six or so variations of the UPPP (uvulopalatopharyngoplasty), transpalatal advancement pharyngoplasty,  tonsillectomy, lingual tonsillectomy, hyoid suspension myotomy, base of tongue volumetric reduction, tongue suspension suture, midline posterior glossectomy, and the new FDA approved INSPIRE hypoglossal nerve stimulation.
