University Sleep Disorders Center is equipped to handle all of your sleep needs. The conditions we treat include:
Snoring & Sleep Apnea
Central Sleep Apnea
Central sleep apnea is a disorder in which your breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Central sleep apnea occurs because your brain doesn’t send proper signals to the muscles that control your breathing.
Complex Sleep Apnea
Complex sleep apnea is the term used to describe a form of sleep disordered breathing in which repeated central apneas (>5/hour) persist or emerge when obstructive events are extinguished with positive airway pressure (PAP) and for which there is not a clear cause for the central apneas.

Narcolepsy, Insomnia and More
Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which you have trouble falling and/or staying asleep. The condition can be short-term (acute) or can last a long time (chronic). It may also come and go. Acute insomnia lasts from 1 night to a few weeks. Insomnia is chronic when it happens at least 3 nights a week for 3 months or more.
REM Behavior Disorder
REM sleep behavior disorder is a condition characterized by sudden body movements and vocalizations while a person experiences vivid dreams during REM sleep. It is a specific type of parasomnia, which describes abnormal behaviors during sleep.
Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a nervous system disorder that causes an overpowering urge to move your legs. It’s also known as Willis-Ekbom disease. Sensations caused by RLS typically occur after lying down or sitting for an extended period of time, such as to sleep, in a car, or in a movie theater. Symptoms most often occur at night.
Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD)
People with PLMD experience repetitive jerking, cramping, or twitching of their lower limbs during sleep. These are known as periodic limb movements (PLMS) and happen every 5 to 90 seconds for up to an hour. The movements disrupt the person’s sleep — even if they don’t wake up — and cause daytime sleepiness and fatigue as a result.
