Circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSD)

Sleep movement disorder
Screening and diagnosis for sleep disorders
If a sleep disorder is disrupting your life, talk to your doctor about a referral to a Sharp-affiliated sleep medicine specialist. We'll conduct a comprehensive review, and if needed, order a sleep study, which may occur at home or in one of our state-of-the-art facilities.
A home sleep study involves taking home a diagnostic machine, hooking it up to yourself at bedtime, sleeping with it on, and then returning it.
An in-lab sleep study may involve an overnight stay in one of our hotel-style outpatient rooms at the Sharp Grossmont Hospital Sleep Disorders Center. Here, our cutting-edge technologies monitor your sleep, focusing on unusual body movement, heart rate, breathing patterns or brain waves.
Depending on your diagnosis, our specialists will cater their care to you. Whatever the outcome, trust in your care team to create a treatment plan that works best for you.
Sleep disorder treatments
There are many ways to bring regular sleep back into your routine. Treatments may include surgery, medical devices or medication, or they may include behavior modifications or diet changes. Trust in us to understand your challenges — and to provide you with the absolute best possible care.
Treating sleep apnea may involve surgery to remove excess tissue from your nose or throat. At Sharp, we offer the following surgical and nonsurgical options for sleep apnea.
