Sleep Medicine Center

Overview

Treatment for all conditions—and ages

At the Center for Sleep Medicine at Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston, we understand that everyone needs sufficient sleep for optimum emotional and physical health. That’s why we provide exceptional care to patients of all ages, beginning as early as infancy. 

Whether you are struggling with insomnia, experiencing sleep apnea, coping with a movement disorder such as restless legs syndrome, or experiencing one of many other sleep-related issues, our skilled staff can evaluate and treat your problem. We offer the latest in diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, all in one state-of-the-art facility with the capacity for overnight sleep studies and evaluation. Depending on your unique needs, we may see you for a one-time visit or on an ongoing basis—whatever it takes to help you sleep more soundly.

Teaming up for excellent care

At the Center for Sleep Medicine, we believe that the best type of care is one that puts patients first. Our skilled physicians and support staff go the extra mile to ensure that you have a positive experience, from providing you with a comprehensive treatment plan, to helping you navigate your insurance coverage.  

Our team works closely with experts from other specialties, including otolaryngology, behavioral psychology, oral surgery and dentistry, to provide a multidisciplinary approach to your individual concerns.
