Assistant Professor, Director of sleep surgery, Saint Joseph Mercy Health system, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.
Dr. Hoff did his medical training (1989-1993) and residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery (1993-1999) at the University of Michigan. After completing training, he joined a general otolaryngology practice in Ann Arbor, Michigan. During this time, he developed an interest in sleep surgery. Dr. Hoff is the Director of Sleep Surgery at St. Joseph Mercy Health System and is Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Michigan.
In 2010 Dr. Hoff began his work with trans-oral robotic surgery (TORS) for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Under the mentorship of Dr. Claudio Vicini and Dr. Filippo Montevecchi, Dr. Hoff has been involved in a number of collaborative efforts which ultimately lead to the publication of TORS for OSA, which he co-edited.
With the advent of neuro-stimulation for OSA in 2014, Dr. Hoff adopted this new treatment paradigm and is actively involved in clinical outcomes research in this promising area of sleep surgery.
In addition to his interest in sleep surgery, Dr. Hoff’s practice includes a focus on benign salivary gland pathology and sialoendoscopy.
