Do you or a family member suffer from chronic insomnia, chronic fatigue, headaches upon waking, restless leg syndrome, excessive snoring? You may be among the millions of Americans who suffer from some form of sleep disorder.

“The signs and symptoms of sleep disorders vary greatly, and for many, their sleep-related problems go undiagnosed and untreated,” said Meena Mehta, MD, medical director of the Hallmark Health Sleep Medicine Center at Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford. “Awareness of how quality sleep can impact a person’s overall health and well-being has dramatically increased in recent years.”

The signs and symptoms of sleep disorders include excessive daytime sleepiness, headache and confusion upon waking, trouble falling and staying asleep, falling asleep at inappropriate times, chronic fatigue, leg cramps, snoring, and irregular heartbeat during the night, among others. Obstructive sleep apnea is the most commonly known sleep disorder and can be associated with a number of health risks including hypertension, cardiovascular disease and stroke.

The new Hallmark Health Sleep Medicine Center at Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford offers complete care and services by a team of sleep medicine providers highly trained in the diagnosis, treatment and management of sleep disorders including sleep apnea, excessive snoring, narcolepsy, chronic insomnia, circadian rhythm abnormalities, and more. With proper diagnosis and management of sleep disorders, patients can experience significant improvement in symptoms, quality of life and associated health risks.

The Sleep Medicine Center is in newly designed space on the third floor at Lawrence Memorial Hospital and provides both hospital overnight and at-home studies. The build out of the space was done in conjunction with the newly renovated location for the Center for Weight Management and Weight Loss Surgery at Lawrence Memorial Hospital. There are strong ties between sleep apnea and obesity and by offering sleep medicine services right on-site for bariatric surgery patients we are able to provide our patients with a comprehensive program in one location.
