Sleep Medicine Top Conditions Treated
The average individual will spend approximately one third of their life asleep. This time is profoundly important for day-to-day functioning and directly impacts an individual’s functional abilities, concentration, productivity, and memory.
Lack of quality sleep has also been associated with many life-threatening health complications. At PMA, our sleep doctors spend time with patients to properly diagnose sleep disorders and form treatment plans.
We diagnose, treat, and manage the following sleep conditions:
- Circadian rhythm sleep disorders
- Idiopathic hypersomnia
- Jet lag
- Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
- Periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD)
- Restless legs syndrome (RLS)
- Restless sleep
- Shift work sleep disorders
Sleep Medicine Services
There are close to 90 internationally recognized and classified sleep disorders. Sleep disorders that remain undiagnosed and untreated can lead to profound daytime functional impairment and life-threatening complications. At PMA, we are pleased to have three board-certified sleep physicians on staff. Drs. Lawrence Stein, Mary-Margaret Lewis, and Pallavi Reddy provide diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care for patients with sleep disorders to ensure that an acceptable quality of life is restored and maintained in all patients.
Our sleep physicians work closely with experts in the fields of otolaryngology, oral surgery, dental sleep medicine, and bariatric surgery when formulating the best treatment plan for each patient. Additionally, we offer a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) clinic, which is designed to ensure optimal comfort, acclimatization, and compliance with CPAP therapy. The clinic is run by a veteran respiratory therapist, Michelle Leonard.
Additionally, our sleep physicians are experienced with the latest diagnostic tools and treatments for sleep apnea and narcolepsy, including home sleep studies and Provent nasal valve therapy. We also have temporary dental appliances, to test whether or not a more permanent dental appliance is right for you.
