  • Mass Eye and Ear researchers Neil Bhattacharyya, MD, MA, FACS, and Phillip Huyett, MD, found that sleep disorders are associated with significantly higher rates of health care utilization, conservatively placing an additional $94.9 billion in costs each year to the United States health care system.


Phillip A. Huyett, MD is a board-certified otolaryngologist with specialized training in sleep medicine and surgery. His primary clinical interest lies in providing comprehensive care to patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. His training consists of a residency in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery followed by fellowship training in sleep medicine, which incorporated advanced surgical interventions for OSA.

Dr. Huyett’s major research interests fall broadly into three categories:

  1. The integration of surgical and non-surgical strategies for optimizing existing therapies for OSA
  2. Strategies to improve the perioperative safety of patients with OSA
  3. Phenotyping/endotyping patients with OSA using polysomnographic and endoscopic predictors for proper surgical and non-surgical therapy selection, including hypoglossal nerve stimulation
