Tests & Treatments

  • BiPAP Therapy
    Used to treat more than just sleep apnea; it's also useful if you have various lung disorders.

  • Biofeedback Therapy
    During biofeedback therapy, you're connected to sensors that measure relaxation to produce reduced muscle tension and normalized blood flow.

  • CPAP Therapy
    If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, your physician may recommend continuous positive airway pressure therapy.

  • Dental Appliances
    Dental appliances are devices that can be custom–made by a dentist or oral surgeon to fit your teeth and jaw.

  • Echocardiogram
    Our radiologists and cardiologists use the latest ultrasound technology while performing an echocardiogram to assess your heart's ability to pump, as well as identify abnormalities with your heart muscle and valves.

  • Home Sleep Test
    The home sleep test is a modified version of a sleep study, self-administered in your home with a portable monitor, rather than sleeping overnight in a sleep laboratory.

  • Light Therapy
    Light therapy is a method used to treat sleep disorders, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), circadian rhythm disorders, depression and other conditions.

  • MRI
    Radiologists and oncologists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of your body to help detect many conditions.

  • Pillar Procedure
    The Pillar procedure is a relatively noninvasive procedure in which several tiny polyester implants are placed into the floppy portion of the roof of the mouth to treat sleep apnea.

  • Pulmonary Function Tests
    By assessing lung volumes, capacities, rates of flow and gas exchange, PFTs provide information that, when evaluated by your physician, can help diagnosis certain lung disorders.

  • Sleep Study
    At our state-of-the-art facility, a polysomnogram, also referred to as a sleep study, is one of the many diagnostic tools that are used to determine the causes of sleep disorders. A home sleep study may be possible for some patients as well.
