An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, including snoring, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, restless legs and insomnia. The impact of these sleep disturbances on the health and welfare of our society is enormous.
While the majority of sufferers remain undiagnosed, the good news is most sleep disorders can be effectively treated.
The BCM Sleep Center in the Department of Medicine offers one of the Southwest's most comprehensive, state-of-the-art sleep medicine programs. Our renowned team of physicians includes one of only 75 doctors worldwide - and the only one in the state of Texas - certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
In addition, we offer patients direct access to Baylor College of Medicine's world-renowned experts in allied health fields such as otolaryngology (ENT), bariatric surgery, neurology and oromaxillofacial surgery, to address underlying health conditions.
