OverviewBy Mayo Clinic Staff
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in sleep disorders evaluate and treat adults and children in the Center for Sleep Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. The Center for Sleep Medicine is one of the largest sleep medicine facilities in the United States. Staff in the center treats about 6,500 new people who have sleep disorders each year. The Center for Sleep Medicine is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in sleep medicine, including doctors trained in lung and breathing conditions (pulmonologists), brain and nervous system conditions (neurologists), and mental health conditions (psychiatrists), have expertise and experience diagnosing and treating people with sleep disorders. Sleep specialists are involved in every stage of your sleep evaluation, from the initial examination, through comprehensive testing and therapy, to follow-up care.
Mayo Clinic doctors may work with doctors trained in ear, nose and throat conditions (otorhinolaryngologists), doctors trained in treating children with medical conditions (pediatricians), doctors trained in heart disease (cardiologists), dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and others to evaluate and treat your condition.
The Center for Sleep Medicine has 24 beds available for people having overnight sleep studies (polysomnograms). Overnight sleep studies are offered Sunday through Friday for adults and children, including infants. You may stay overnight at the sleep center if your child is being evaluated.
You also may have other tests in the Center for Sleep Medicine. Some tests may be done in your home. Mayo Clinic sleep specialists have experience with all breathing-support equipment available for in-home use.
