Welcome to California Sleep Institute of Palo Alto, CA

The Center for Facial and Airway Reconstructive Surgery (CFARS) was founded by internationally renowned pioneers in sleep apnea surgery; Drs. Nelson Powell and Robert Riley. The CalSleep.com website provides information and education on breathing disorders, including Sleep Apnea Surgery and the surgical treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome (OSA). In 2009, the Center for Facial and Airway Reconstructive Surgery joined the CEI Medical Group as the California Sleep Institute (CSI).

Established 24 years ago, CSI still strives for excellence in:

  • Evaluation and treatment of obstructive breathing disorders, including Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome, Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome and snoring
  • Diagnosis and treatment of facial deformities
  • Management of sinus disease, as well as other head and neck-related conditions
