The Dallas Center For Sleep Disorders
The Dallas Center for Sleep Disorders was founded in 2006 to help people affected by snoring, sleep problems, or daytime fatigue get the best Sleep Health treatment available, tailored to their individual needs. Since then, the Dallas Center for Sleep Disorders has expanded its locations and options to better serve our clients in a more convenient and supportive way. Along the way, we have shortened our name to simply Dallas Sleep. At Dallas Sleep, our #1 philosophy is to serve our clients and to present you with the best treatment options available. We are here to meet your needs, as it specifically relates to your Sleep Health. Therefore, we will never push an agenda on you in any way. Ultimately, you call the shots.
We carefully and thoughtfully evaluate our patiwents before creating a treatment plan that is easy to understand. We are skilled at diagnosing and treating all types of sleep disorders, including snoring, insomnia, sleep apnea, chronic fatigue, excessive daytime sleepiness, restless legs syndrome, sleep walking, night terrors, and narcolepsy.
Research and clinical experience have proven that sleep disorders contribute to an increased risk of attention deficit disorders (in both children and adults), hypertension, obesity/overweight, type 2 diabetes, cardiac arrhythmias (AFib), stroke, depression, anxiety, dementia, erectile dysfunction (ED), low testosterone levels (low T) and decreased libido. The good news is that most sleep disorders, when properly diagnosed, can be successfully treated or managed.
Dallas Sleep was founded by one of the leaders in the field
of Sleep Health.
Dallas Sleep has been modeled after the Stanford Sleep Disorders Clinic in Palo Alto, CA, which is the world’s leading clinical and research institution in the field. Our Founder, Dr. Raj Kakar, was trained at the Stanford Sleep Disorders Clinic. Dr. Kakar’s vision was to bring the cutting edge scientific knowledge and expertise of Stanford to the DFW Metroplex. Over the years, our evaluation and treatment options to promote Sleep Health have grown substantially as clinical research and technological advancements have moved the medical field forward.
The majority of people worldwide spend about 1/3
of their lives sleeping.
Although that seems like a lot of time, unfortunately with our rapidly progressing technological society, more and more people are getting less and less sleep. Chronic sleep deprivation is a real public health problem today. It affects not only individuals who are not getting enough sleep, but also social relationships, work productivity, and emotional/mental well-being. Equally important to sleep quantity is sleep quality. We know that sleep disorders can significantly disrupt quality of sleep and reduce the amount of time spent in deep sleep. This reduction in deep sleep (REM sleep or Stage 3 sleep) has dire consequences for health and often results in waking up unrefreshed from sleep.
- 1 out of every 2 people with type 2 Diabetes has sleep apnea
- People with sleep apnea are at much higher risk for obesity
Sleep is not only important for invigorating our mental and emotional happiness but also a cornerstone for revitalizing our physical fitness. Sleep should not be viewed as time lost or wasted; on the contrary, sleep should be appreciated for its restorative function to our daily emotional, mental and physical well-being.
Unfortunately, more than 100 million Americans of all ages regularly fail to get a good night’s sleep. In fact, sleep disorders are recognized for contributing to the development of a number of medical conditions, such as ADD, learning disorders, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, atrial fibrillation, heart disease, dementia, depression, anxiety, ED, GERD, and low T. The good news is that most sleep disorders can be successfully treated or managed when properly diagnosed.
