Never underestimate the value of sleep.

A good night’s rest is not just something that helps you get through the day, it is a vital part of your health. If you consistently have difficulty sleeping through the night, you are at risk of developing severe health conditions like heart disease and clinical depression.
Lexington Clinic Sleep Center was awarded the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) accreditation in 2022 for a period of five years. AASM Standards for Accreditation have been the gold standard by which the medicine community and the public evaluate sleep medicine facilities. Achieving this accreditation demonstrates a sleep medicine provider’s commitment to high quality, patient-centered care through adherence to these standards.

Examples of Common Sleep Disorders

Insomnia – This is a common condition experienced by 1 in 5 Americans nearly every night. You may have insomnia if you have difficulty falling asleep, wake frequently during the night, wake up early and cannot get back to sleep, or feel lethargic during the day. Often caused by stress, anxiety, depression, disease, or medications.

Sleep Apnea – If people in your household have complained about your loud snoring, you may want to be checked for sleep apnea. This condition is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep, loud snoring, and excessive daytime sleepiness (i.e., falling asleep easily and sometimes inappropriately). Untreated, this disorder can be life threatening; consequences may include high blood pressure and other cardiovascular complications. More than twelve million Americans suffer from sleep apnea, and it is conservatively estimated that ten million remain undiagnosed.
Circadian Rhythm Disruption – Your circadian rhythm is your body’s internal schedule for sleeping. When this is disrupted, you may find yourself awake at odd hours and sleeping during the day. This condition is often experienced by shift workers, symptoms of this disorder include memory and concentration difficulties and impaired job performance, stomach problems (especially heartburn and indigestion), menstrual irregularities, colds and flu, weight gain, high blood pressure and heart problems.
Narcolepsy - Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological condition that affects an estimated 200,000 Americans. Individuals with narcolepsy can randomly fall asleep at odd times. This can be a very dangerous condition as it is very possible someone could fall asleep while driving a car or other precarious situations.
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) – More than 4 million Americans feel an abnormal sense of discomfort in their legs while trying sleep. The sensation is constant and might not disappear without standing up and walking around, making sleep near impossible.
Treating Sleep Disorders
Once your sleep disorder has been diagnosed, the medical team will start working with you to find out what’s causing it and the best way to treat it. Sleep disorders can often be treated with lifestyle changes, including medication, better diet, exercise, and stress management.
In your frustration with your sleep disorder, you may have searched the internet and read about similar treatments that proved ineffectual. The difference here is that the treatment prescribed will be customized specifically for your condition and lifestyle. We do not hand you a list of things that could help and walk you out the door. Our team cares about what they do and helping patients. We can follow up on your condition and continuously tailor treatment to make sure it addresses the root of your problem.

Get Better Sleep with this Innovative Sleep Apnea Solution!

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a very common but disruptive sleep disorder that affects about 22 million Americans. OSA is caused by the airway’s soft tissues collapsing and blocking the flow of oxygen. As the brain senses this lack of oxygen, the sleeper wakes up very briefly just long enough to take a breath before falling back asleep. This may happen hundreds of times per night as the cycle repeats itself, causing very poor sleep quality. Left untreated, OSA can be deadly. It can cause accidents, mood swings, memory loss, stroke, and heart attack.
Common Sleep Apnea Treatment Options
The most utilized treatment method for OSA is CPAP, short for “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure,” in which the patient wears a mask attached to a hose that blows pressurized air into the mouth to keep the airway open during sleep. However, studies show that about half of the people who are prescribed CPAP do not use it as prescribed. Other treatment options are available, but they may be just as burdensome, such as wearing oral appliances.
How the Inspire Surgical Treatment Can Help OSA Suffers Sleep Better
A new, effective sleep apnea treatment is here. No mask, no hose, just sleep.
If you have OSA but cannot not use a CPAP mask or oral appliances, Inspire may be right for you. Rather than having to wear a mask every night, Inspire works inside your body with your natural breathing process. Inspire works by mildly stimulating the airway muscles to keep it open as you sleep. You will be provided a small, handheld remote to turn the Inspire on before you go to bed and turn it off again once you wake up.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Inspire is an FDA-approved treatment for OSA that has helped over 8,000 OSA patients across the globe. It works by implanting the Inspire system under the skin of the neck and chest with 3 small surgical incisions during an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home the same day as the procedure. Most patients recover from the short surgical procedure quickly and only require over-the-counter medication to control any discomfort.
Inspire clinical trial results published in January 2014 concluded that patients who use the Inspire treatment had significant reductions in sleep apnea events and substantial improvement in their quality of life. These improvements were sustained during a five-year follow-up in 2019.
Notable outcomes of Inspire therapy include:
  • 90% of patients’ bed partners reported soft or no snoring.
  • Patients had a 79% reduction in sleep apnea events.
  • 94% of patients prescribed Inspire treatment reported satisfaction.
  • 96% of Inspire patients say Inspire is a better, more comfortable treatment compared to CPAP and would recommend it to others.
