Sleep Disorders Center
The Henry Ford Sleep Disorders Center treats patients who suffer from insomnia, sleep apnea and other issues related to sleep loss. Chronic and/or consistent sleep loss, which affects 50 to 70 million Americans, can increase health risks associated with diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, depression, heart disease and stroke.
Founded in 1978 and with over 30 years of experience, the Henry Ford Sleep Disorders Center is one of the longest-running and most comprehensive sleep centers in the United States and we consistently rank as one of the nation's top research facilities for the scientific study of sleep. Patient evaluation is offered at several locations across Southeast Michigan, including sleep laboratories and clinics offering advanced diagnostic methods and multi-specialty treatment options.
Our Sleep Disorders Center was founded as the first of its kind in the U.S. We conduct research on all major sleep disorders with a focus on:
- Causes and mechanisms of insomnia
- Pharmacology of sleep
- Epidemiology of sleep and sleep disorders
- Detrimental effects of various drugs and alcohol on sleep
- Impact of shift work on sleep and awake functioning
We offer a team of experts, including board-certified sleep doctors with a wide range of specialties to best serve your unique needs. Our sleep doctors are dedicated to first-rate patient care and research, which allows us to offer a variety of treatment options not available at many sleep disorders centers.
