Sleep Apnea

The Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center treats sleep apnea, which is when breathing is disrupted frequently while you’re sleeping. In addition to leaving you feeling tired, sleep apnea is associated with health conditions that include diabetes, heart problems, hypertension, memory issues, stroke and weight gain. Our highly skilled team is committed to diagnosing and treating your sleep apnea so that you can enjoy the benefits of a good night’s sleep every night.

Why Choose Sleep Apnea Care at Vanderbilt

  • Hotel-based facilities

    Because your surroundings can greatly affect quality of sleep, our sleep lab services are provided in two premier hotels — one in Nashville and the other in Franklin. Both combine comfort with state-of-the-art technology. 

  • Recognized care

    The Vanderbilt Sleep Disorders Center is accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM). We’ve also won a Five Star Excellence Award four years in a row for scoring in the top 10% of clinics in the U.S. in terms of patient satisfaction.

  • Team approach

    We work together to ensure that you receive the comprehensive care you need. Our team members collaborate with each other, as well as with experts in other medical disciplines, to provide you with individual care that addresses your unique needs.

  • Innovation

    If you need an alternative to a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device, Vanderbilt is the only institution in Middle Tennessee offering hypoglossal nerve stimulation, which involves an implantable device for obstructive sleep apnea.

  • Personalized care

    We tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique needs and health goals. We help you navigate your treatment options to ensure that you receive the best possible care.

Locations
