Center for Sleep Medicine
Consistent, restful sleep is vital for good health and wellness. A good night's sleep helps the body renew itself, enabling the various systems of the body to function optimally. Millions of Americans, however, are unable to get sufficient amounts of proper quality, restorative sleep. They may feel tired during the daytime, find it difficult to concentrate, and have problems performing their daily activities. Over time, untreated sleep disorders can elevate a person's risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack, and stroke.
The Center for Sleep Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is a state-of-the-art facility accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine to provide comprehensive care for patients with sleep disorders.
