    Eric J. Kezirian, MD, MPH is Professor of Sleep Medicine in the USC Caruso Department of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery. Dr. Kezirian is a leader in the surgical treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea and is the Past President of the International Surgical Sleep Society, the premiere organization in the field. He is the only surgeon in Southern California with a primary clinical and research focus in sleep surgery.

    Dr. Kezirian utilizes a wide array of procedures and the latest research, including his own, to provide his patients with the most appropriate, effective treatment plan. His research has addressed the most important questions in the field, including how surgeons should choose procedures, how well surgery works, and the development of new surgical techniques and novel therapies. This work has been supported by the National Institutes of Health and other organizations. Dr. Kezirian has led a number of major clinical trials, and he has many active research studies. He gives lectures frequently across the country and the world.

    After graduating magna cum laude from Harvard College, he obtained a Master of Science degree from the University of Oxford and then received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. During his residency training in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at the University of Washington, Dr. Kezirian received a Master of Public Health degree. Following his fellowship in sleep surgery at Stanford University, he joined the faculty at the University of California, San Francisco. There Dr. Kezirian was the director of the Division of Sleep Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery prior to coming to USC.

    Dr. Kezirian is Board-certified both in otolaryngology-head & neck surgery and sleep medicine.
