More than 70 million Americans suffer from some type of sleep disorder. These include:

  • Sleep Apnea
  • Insomnia
  • Heavy snoring
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Narcolepsy

An untreated sleep disorder can reduce your daytime productivity, increase your risk of accidents and put you at risk for illness and even early death.

The Sleep Disorders Center at Doctors Hospital evaluates and treats patients of all ages with sleep related problems. Our dedicated, skilled staff performs a variety of studies on patients in our hotel-like outpatient facility. These studies include:

  • Diagnostic Polysomnography (PSG)
  • Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)/ Bi-level Ventilation
  • Multiple Sleep Latency Testing (MSLT)
  • Maintenance of Wakefulness Testing (MWT)

Testing
Sleep assessments are provided through physician referral only. If a sleep disorder is suspected, a sleep study can be ordered which involves an overnight stay at our comfortable facility.

Treatment
Depending on the sleep disorder diagnosed, treatment may include:

  • Behavioral modification
  • Medication
  • Medical devices
  • Surgery
As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
