The Ridgeview Sleep Disorders Center offers diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders in adults. Common disorders include obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, restless leg syndrome, periodic limb movement disorder and insomnia.
Led by Ravi Vaela, MD, Ridgeview Sleep Disorders Center is one of only 19 sleep centers in the metro area accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). Dr. Vaela, who is board certified in Sleep Medicine, provides consultations for initial diagnoses and follow-up care to discuss further treatment plans with patients. “Lack of sleep can cause fatigue, which can affect a person’s ability to be alert and productive. Fatigue can also create an increased risk of injury from accidents at work or behind the wheel of a motor vehicle,” said Dr. Vaela. “Longer-term effects include a greater risk of hypertension, heart conditions and stroke.”
With consultations, treatment and good follow-up care, Ridgeview Sleep Disorders Center can help people get the sleep they need.
