Ongoing Research

  • Advanced Recovery Protocol for TORS: In an effort to improve the short term recovery process following TORS we are launching a program to decrease pain and dehydration in the first 2 weeks after surgery.
  • We are involved in a cooperative study with the University of Michigan Department of Otolaryngology looking at the role of human papilloma virus (HPV) in the growth of obstructive lingual tonsils and obstructive sleep apnea.
  • Liposomal Bupivaine for sustained pain relief following tonsillectomy.
  • Do we really need a robot for multilevel treatment of moderate to severe OSAHS?: Feasibility study employing Coblation, high definition video and a mouth gag.
  • Addressing the retrolingual space in moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea: Outcomes stratified by Friedman stage in patients undergoing TORS +-multilevel surgery.
  • Prospective evaluation of TORS for patients with moderate to severe OSAHS.
