As many as 40 million Americans are afflicted by more than 70 types of sleep disorders. Whether insomnia, restless legs syndrome, or sleep apnea, sleep disorders can have serious consequences. A sleep study is used to examine sleep quality and body behavior, and can help diagnose your sleep problems.
Dignity Health Neurological Institute of Northern California has a comprehensive team of expert neurologists, pulmonologists, psychologists, and otolaryngologists, who work with you and your sleeping partner to diagnose sleep disorders and provide the appropriate treatment.
Our sleep disorder program is anchored by two sleep centers, located in Sacramento and Woodland, CA. Offering the latest digital technology and a staff with years of clinical experience, both centers are accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
