When you are not sleeping well, everything feels like a struggle. Thankfully, the Temple Sleep Disorder Program provides rapid diagnosis and treatment for all types of sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea.
The Sleep Disorders Program is equipped 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 Program 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 Program 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. Physicians at the Sleep Disorders Program 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 physicians at the Sleep Disorders Program 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 Program with the opportunity to benefit from cutting-edge therapies before they are available to the public.
