Sleep disorders can interfere with your ability to perform at work, drive a car, and enjoy your life. WVU Medicine doctors from a range of fields help patients overcome sleep problems. Our team includes physicians from psychiatry, otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat specialists), pediatrics, neurology, and pulmonary medicine.
The most common kinds of sleep disorders are:
- snoring and sleep apnea
- restless leg syndrome
The WVU Sleep Evaluation Center identifies and helps resolve sleep-related disorders. Your primary care provider or family doctor can refer you for a sleep study to determine the cause of a sleep disorder.
Testing for all types of sleep disorders is conducted by experienced technologists trained in preparing patients for and conducting sleep studies. The study results are interpreted by doctors who are board certified in treating sleep disorders.
If you are diagnosed with a sleep disorder, comprehensive treatment is available to you.
