About Sleep Medicine

Sleep medicine is a medical specialty or subspecialty devoted to problems with sleeping. These disorders can include having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, falling asleep at the wrong times, sleeping too much, and suffering abnormal behaviors during sleep.

The UMMC Difference

The University of Mississippi Medical Center's sleep disorders program provides comprehensive diagnostic evaluation of those with suspected sleep disorders as well as a full range of treatments to reverse or improve diagnosed disorders.

Only a few ENT surgeons in the country are fellowship trained in sleep medicine, and UMMC Sleep Medicine is home to one of the few physicians with training in both upper airway surgery and sleep medicine. Our specialized physician works to customize a treatment plan for each patient's unique needs.

UMMC Sleep Medicine has the longest-standing accreditation in Mississippi by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
