If you have difficulty falling and/or staying asleep, or difficulty staying awake, you’re among the millions of Americans with a sleep disorder.
Sleep disorders diminish the daily quality of life for millions of people. Poor sleep also leads to serious health problems, especially heart disease, and an increased risk of car crashes.
Our expert sleep medicine team includes specialists in pulmonary medicine, neurological diseases, reconstructive surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery and psychology. Many team physicians have additional fellowship training in sleep disorders, and all are board-certified in their specialty areas.
Leader in Treating Sleep Disorders
We provide access to physicians who are dual certified both in Sleep Medicine and disorders of the upper airway (Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery). They are able to assist patients in finding the best therapy tailored to their individual needs. Treatment may range from a minimally invasive office based procedure to more advanced airway reconstruction. Physicians use the best available medical evidence to guide treatment, and with the use of modern tools, evaluate outcomes.
Emphasis on Patient Education
Educating patients about their sleep disorder — even before treatment begins — is key to a successful outcome. We discuss recommended treatment options and work with each person to discuss how treatment will evolve over time, going through each step of the process. Patients truly partner with our team members in maximizing their health and well being. People who are struggling with their prescribed medication or sleep equipment get the help they need to maximize the effective use of these items.
We also offer community education classes for the public on the health effects of inadequate sleep.
