When you are not sleeping well, everything feels like a struggle. Thankfully, the Temple Sleep Disorders Center provides rapid diagnosis and treatment for all types of sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome and more.
The Sleep Disorders Center is equipped with a team of sleep specialists with extensive experience and knowledge to provide patients with high-quality care through all stages of evaluation and treatment, from sleep studies and diagnosis, to monitoring and follow-up care. As a large center with several attending physicians who are board-certified in Sleep Medicine and a sleep fellowship program, Temple’s Sleep Disorders Center is usually able to see patients, evaluate them, and begin treatment much more quickly than other sleep centers, sometimes within a few days.
Patients at the Sleep Disorders Center benefit from Temple’s multi-disciplinary approach, which means that sleep specialists work closely with ear nose and throat physicians, dentists, and other specialists to treat issues that can cause or contribute to sleep disorders. Sleep specialists at the Sleep Disorders Center also work closely with the specialists at Temple’s bariatric medicine program and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Program to provide comprehensive treatment for patients whose sleep disorders overlap with COPD or weight issues.
The sleep specialists at the Sleep Disorders Center are involved in several clinical trials, both for treatments specific to sleep disorders, such as positional therapies and breathing devices, and for treatments for other conditions that can contribute to sleep disorders, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This provides patients at the Sleep Disorders Center with the opportunity to benefit from cutting-edge therapies before they are available to the public.
