ABOUT OUR PRACTICE

Sleep Medicine Specialists of South Florida was created as a way for patients to have their sleep disorders evaluated, diagnosed and managed. We are a comprehensive sleep disorders center dedicated to the management of snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, sleep apnea syndromes, insomnia, narcolepsy, periodic limb movement disorder, restless leg syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders, jet lag, parasomnias and REM behavior disorder. We specialize in both adults and children.

 

We have the ability to efficiently and accurately diagnose sleep problems in both adults and children, and we tailor highly specialized treatment to fit your needs.

There are 84 documented sleep disorders and many people will, at some point in their lives, suffer from one or more of these disorders. Even snoring is considered a sleep disorder and we address this condition in our office.

Sleep medicine is a relatively new field of medicine that focuses on sleep disorders such as sleep apnea syndromes, insomnia, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, circadian rhythm disorders and parasomnias.

Some of the conditions we treat involve performing a sleep study. A sleep study is a non-invasive, pain-free clinical assessment tool to help identify sleep disorders. The studies can be done in home or in a sleep lab. We strive to obtain a minimum of 6 hours of recording time. As mentioned before, this study is painless and it allows us to monitor your brain waves, eye movements, chin movements, snoring, breathing patterns, oxygen level, heart rate, heart rhythm and leg movements. For some sleep disorders, however, some patients may also need to perform daytime sleep studies.
