There is a relatively new and innovative treatment option available to individuals diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) which is defined by pauses in breathing that can last a few seconds to a few minutes, and occur as little as 5 to greater than 30 times per hour.
The discovery of OSA dates back to the 20th century when a physician coined the first name given to what we now call sleep apnea, Pickwickian syndrome. Around 1980, the first continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine was introduced as treatment for OSA. With lack of compliance as an issue, OSA sufferers have sought out other treatment possibilities so that they can feel better and improve their quality of life with such options as oral appliances, invasive surgery and lifestyle modifications. Sleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America is revolutionizing the field of sleep medicine by offering patients a safe, minimally invasive, curative alternative to a lifetime of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine usage, or other more invasive options. Our company, SATCOA, has created a comprehensive treatment program that allows ASCs, VACs, UCCs, and hospitals identify the estimated 80-90% undiagnosed OSA patients and offer them curative treatment options. If the test is found to be positive for sleep apnea, the patient is referred to a SATCOA trained, independently contracted ENT to assess the patient’s candidacy.


Our clinical operation’s best practices allow our comprehensive treatment platform to be utilized without adding stress to your current staff.
Our Physician Partner ProgramSleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America® (SATCOA) provides the only in-office cure for Sleep Apnea. This treatment option via mask uses pressurized air to open the airway so that the obstruction does not interfere with breathing. Sleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America currently are located in Dallas, TX, Savannah, GA, Statesboro, GA, Albany, GA, Douglas, GA, and Tampa, FL.
If the patient is found to be a candidate, he or she is started on our treatment algorithm designed to cure OSA.
We spend the necessary time to gain a thorough understanding of each patient’s sleep disorder and individual medical needs to effectively provide the best care and treatment solutions available. When the questionnaire concludes, the facility partner physician prescribes and sends the patient home that day with a home sleep test (HST) device.


The surgical OSA patient is started on autoPAP preoperatively and encouraged to use the autoPAP during the post-operative period throughout the treatment program.
This tightening and reduction directly prevents the tongue from blocking the airway while one sleeps, reducing and virtually eliminating sleep apnea. The non-surgical patient is also started on autoPAP and begins the treatment program as soon as practical. Less than 24 hours later, the ASC, VAC, UCC, or hospital has the HST report, which has been read by one of SATCOA’s board-certified sleep physicians.
