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.

There are only a few ENT surgeons in the country who are fellowship trained in sleep medicine. UMMC Sleep Medicine is home to one of those few physicians with the training in both upper airway surgery and sleep medicine to customize a treatment plan for each individual patient.

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