University Sleep Disorders Center is equipped to handle all of your sleep needs. The conditions we treat include:

Snoring & Sleep Apnea



Snoring is caused by the rattling and vibration of tissues near the airway in the back of the throat. During sleep, the muscles loosen, narrowing the airway, and as we inhale and exhale, the moving air causes the tissue to flutter and make noise like a flag in a breeze.
Some people are more prone to snoring because of the size and shape of the muscle and tissues in their neck. In other cases, excess relaxing of the tissue or narrowing of the airway can lead to snoring.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the muscles that support the soft tissues in your throat, such as your tongue and soft palate, temporarily relax. When these muscles relax, your airway is narrowed or closed, and breathing is momentarily cut off. Obstructive sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder.

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


Narcolepsy & Idiopathic Hypersomnia

Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder that affects the brain’s ability to control sleep-wake cycles. People with narcolepsy may feel rested after waking, but then feel very sleepy throughout much of the day. Many individuals with narcolepsy also experience uneven and interrupted sleep that can involve waking up frequently during the night.
Idiopathic hypersomnia is an uncommon sleep disorder that causes you to be excessively sleepy during the day even after a good or prolonged night’s sleep. It also often causes difficulty waking up after you’ve been asleep at night or for a nap. Naps generally aren’t refreshing.

Shift Work Disorder

Shift work disorder – also known as shift work sleep disorder – is a condition that primarily affects people who work night, early morning, and rotating shifts for their jobs. The disorder may cause insomnia when workers attempt to sleep and/or excessive sleepiness while they are at work. Significant sleep loss usually occurs.
The average person with shift work disorder loses one to four hours of sleep per night. Shift work is loosely defined as any shift that falls outside the hours of 6 am and 7 pm, including fixed and rotating hours. Roughly 16% of wage and salary employees in the U.S. follow shift work schedules. Of these workers, current estimates suggest one in five has experienced shift work disorder.


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 Limbs


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.
Asset 1

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.
