Inspire | Alternative to CPAP
No mask. No hose. Just sleep.
Inspire for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the first and only FDA approved implantable device for treating OSA. It works from inside the patient’s body with their natural breathing.
The patient turns on and operates the Inspire sleep apnea device via a handheld remote. The remote allows the device to deliver a mild stimulation to key airway muscles. This helps keep the airway open while they sleep.
Dr. Cilento is proud to be the first surgeon to offer this innovative, life changing technology to Spring, Houston and the Woodlands.
Dr. Cilento & Inspire on KPRC 2 Houston

How it Works
Inspire works inside your body while you sleep. Dr. Cilento performs a simple outpatient procedure to implant the device. When you're ready for bed, click the remote and turn Inspire on. A gentile pulse opens your airway while you are asleep. This allows you to breathe normally.

Inspire for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Costs
Most insurance companies cover this procedure but some will only approve the therapy based on medical necessity. Patients can typically expect to pay the cost of any unmet deductible for the year, as well as any required copay/coinsurance fee for the procedure.
Our patient care coordinator will work with you to determine what costs will be covered by your insurance.
