Sleep Medicine at Wellstar
Specially trained Wellstar physicians diagnose and treat sleep disorders, helping patients get restful sleep and address related health concerns. Our dedicated sleep specialists are there through every step of your sleep evaluation, from the initial exam to comprehensive testing and follow-up care. Sleep tests take place in one of Wellstar’s convenient sleep center locations. During testing, patients spend the night in a relaxing, comfortable setting.
At Wellstar, specialized sleep doctors use advanced testing to get to the bottom of your sleep problem. Testing may include a non-invasive, at-home monitoring device, an x-ray, CT or MRI to look for physical problems or a sleep study conducted overnight in a comfortable, hotel-like Wellstar Sleep Center. The study measures brain waves, oxygen and other indicators.
Your sleep medicine team may collaborate with specialists trained in ear, nose and throat conditions, pediatricians, cardiologists, dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons and others to evaluate and treat your condition. Underlying conditions may include obstructive sleep apnea, chronic insomnia, narcolepsy, severe daytime sleepiness, restless legs syndrome, heart disease or obesity.
