Sleep Medicine Division

Our Sleep Medicine Section is comprised of faculty who have sub-specialty training in sleep medicine and are experts in the full spectrum of diagnostic techniques, treatments, and advanced medical technologies for sleep and breathing disorders. We treat patients at our UT Southwestern Neurology Clinic, Parkland Hospital Neurophysiology Lab, and the UTSW Clinical Center for Sleep and Breathing Disorders (CCSBD). The Center is accredited by both the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Joint Commission.

Our physicians see outpatients for consultation and ongoing care for the full range of sleep disorders, and interpret sleep studies performed in the 6-bed sleep laboratory. We offer a one-year sleep medicine fellowship program that is accredited by the ACGME. The fellow is actively involved in the diagnosis and management of outpatient adults and children as well as the inpatient care of adults at University Hospitals. The fellow will see a wide spectrum of sleep disorders including:

  • Sleep-related breathing disorders

  • Circadian rhythm disorders
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Parasomnias

Fellows receive expert supervision and hands-on training from a multi-disciplinary group of faculty who are board certified in sleep medicine. Our fellowship faculty including four neurologists, three pulmonologists, one clinical psychologist, two pediatric pulmonologists, and a sleep pediatrician at the two AASM-accredited sleep centers.
