The fellowship-trained and board-certified team of physicians and sleep technologists at our four Norton Sleep Centers are experienced in diagnosing and treating a variety of sleep disorders.
Sleep disorder is a term used for any condition that disrupts normal sleep-wake patterns. While some are more common than others, any disruption in sleep can have major effects on your overall health. High blood pressure, symptoms of depression, congestive heart failure, sexual dysfunction, acid reflux disease, issues with blood sugar control and more can improve with treatment of a sleep disorder.
Our team of physicians has more than 200 years of combined experience diagnosing and treating sleep disorders.
Primary areas of focus include:
- Circadian rhythm disorders
When the regular pattern of sleeping and waking is disrupted due to shift work, jet lag or other factors, some people find it difficult to resume a sleep-wake schedule that fits their needs.
Insomnia makes it difficult to fall asleep or maintain sleep. It may result from a variety of causes, such as breathing difficulties or involuntary muscle movements during sleep.
Narcolepsy is characterized by persistent sleepiness or falling asleep during waking hours, which may interfere with work or school. This can occur despite adequate sleep.
- Pediatric sleep disorders
Norton Children’s Pediatric Sleep Center provides sleep studies for children of all ages. Sleep disorders in infants, children and teens are common.
- Restless legs syndrome
Periodic limb movements are caused by involuntary muscle contractions during sleep, which may result in insufficient sleep. Symptoms may include a crawling sensation or restless feeling in the legs prior to sleep onset.
- Sleep apnea and snoring
Loud snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue are the most common symptoms associated with sleep apnea. People with sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during sleep — as many as several hundred times a night.
