Pediatric sleep medicine

Determining if your child has a sleep problem begins with a visit to our board-certified sleep specialists. We treat many common sleep disorders, as well as rare sleep problems, in children. Obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, insomnia and excessive daytime sleepiness are a few of the most common disorders we diagnose and treat. We start with an office visit to better understand the type of sleep problem and then recommend the best plan to diagnose and treat your child.

As part of the only regional pediatric sleep program, our sleep disorder specialists can help when a sleep study shows that your child has sleep apnea. Our experts will work with you on a treatment plan to improve your child’s sleep. We have a number of sleep clinic locations where patients may undergo sleep testing:

Health optimization services are an innovative, pediatrician-led program for kids who have ongoing weight gain or chronic excess weight. There are no diets or weigh-ins. We focus on changing how we think about food and activity. It's a multi-month family commitment for a healthier, happier future for kids from tots to teens.

If obstructive sleep apnea is caused by enlarged tonsils and adenoids, we’ll connect you with a pediatric ear, nose and throat surgeon because this operation may be needed to remove them.
