Pediatric Sleep Medicine
Sleeping problems in children are more common than we realize. Unstable patterns of sleep cause impairments not only in the child, but also in the caregivers of these children. This decreases the overall quality of sleep for the child and can affect the quality of relationships among family members. Children with poor sleep often present with increased hyperactivity, daytime sleepiness and other sleep disorders.
Asad Ansari, M.D., a highly skilled specialist board certified in sleep medicine, understands the complexities and treatment options available for treating children of all ages with disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, inadequate sleep hygiene, insomnia and delayed sleep phase syndrome. Memorial makes receiving these services convenient and close to home with Memorial's Sleep Disorders Center being located right here in South Bend. Allow Dr. Ansari's years of experience to help turn your child’s chaotic nights into restful and satisfying days.
Some of the sleep disorders diagnosed and treated at Memorial's Sleep Disorders Center include:
- Obstructive sleep apnea
