Part of Strong Memorial Hospital
The UR Medicine Sleep Center was established in 2000 with a mission to excel in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. It is an academic, multidisciplinary center, and clinicians and healthcare professionals from a wide range of medical specialties staff the program.
The UR Medicine Sleep Center is the largest sleep disorders facility in Western New York, with convenient locations in Brighton and Brockport. Each year, physicians and staff diagnose and treat thousands of patients with sleep apnea, insomnia, narcolepsy, and other sleep-related conditions.
In addition to its clinical mission, the UR Medicine Sleep Center has active educational and research programs. The center hosts a robust sleep disorders fellowship, and trainees from all medical specialties learn from nationally recognized experts in sleep medicine. In addition, enrollment in clinical trials is ongoing.
Further, in our office we have a behavioral sleep medicine program, where patients can work with a licensed mental health professional for treatment of insomnia. This program is based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This is an approach that helps you change actions or thoughts that contribute to your sleeping difficulties. It is a program that develops healthy sleep patterns, without the use of medications.
