Sleep Disorders Center 

Children with airway obstruction blockages of the nasal passage can develop obstructive sleep apnea. This can result in daytime sleepiness and other complications. Our board-certified sleep medicine specialists expertly diagnose the cause so a treatment plan can be coordinated.
