Specialties: Otolaryngology (ENT)REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT
Dr. Brian Affleck, MD, is an ENT-Otolaryngologist and has been in practice for more than 20 years.
Dr. Affleck graduated from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences F Edward Hebert School of Medicine in 1991.
Dr. Affleck is the first provider in Idaho to perform a surgical procedure for obstructive sleep apnea. During a short outpatient procedure, a small device manufactured by Inspire is implanted under the skin of the neck and chest. When the patient is ready for bed, they click a remote to turn on the Inspire equipment. The device treats the root cause of sleep apnea by applying gentle stimulation to key airway muscles, allowing a patient to breathe normally and get more restful sleep.
