Sleep Medicine

The Sleep Wake Center

If you are among the 40% of adults who suffer from sleep disorders, you are not reaping the many health benefits of a good night’s sleep.  Worse, you may be at greater risk for health complications.

Getting enough sleep matters to our physical and emotional health. Sleep is critically important for regulating many of our body functions.  Adequate sleep helps us focus and concentrate, maintain a healthier weight, better cope with stress, maintain cardiovascular health, and maintain our immune systems.

Plus, without adequate rest, you may be at greater risk for health complications such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke, immune system problems, and accidents due to an inability to concentrate while going about your daily routine.

Aurora BayCare’s Sleep Wake Center is accredited by the America Academy of Sleep Medicine.  Our sleep specialists are board certified in primary care, sleep medicine, and pulmonology.

And, because other health conditions often contribute to sleep disorders, you can have confidence knowing you have access to the entire Aurora BayCare network of experts, including neurologists, behavioral health specialists, and others who will support you in your quest to get a good night’s sleep.

At the Aurora BayCare Sleep Wake Center we offer the full spectrum of diagnostic and treatment options for many sleep-related disorders, including:

  • Circadian rhythm disorders
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness

  • Shift work/jet lag challenges  
  • Sleep apnea
  • Sleep terrors, sleep walking, and other parasomnia events
    Sleep diagnostic services include

Depending on your particular sleep concerns, non-surgical treatment options may include lifestyle changes, behavioral therapy, medication, or air-pressure assistance devices used during sleep. State-of-the-art surgical treatment options are available when non-surgical remedies do not work.
