Sleep Disorders

At Indiana University Health Bedford Hospital, our physicians diagnose problems that affect sleep quality and find solutions to improve your sleep. We treat many sleep problems, including insomnia, sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome (RLS). The Indiana University Health Bedford Hospital Sleep Disorders Center features adult sleep beds for sleep studies. We require a physician referral for evaluation.

We have comfortable facilities for sleep studies such as polysomnograms and multiple sleep latency tests. These tests allow doctors to monitor your heart rate, breathing and muscle movements while you sleep.

Our sleep medicine doctors create a comprehensive treatment plan to address the causes behind your sleep problems. Our team will also teach you proper sleep hygiene to ensure that your behavior is helping—rather than hurting—your sleep cycle. Depending on your needs, you may be referred to a specialist who can help with an underlying medical condition or to a sleep psychologist to assist with potential psychological issues.

With some of the most experienced sleep physicians and technical staff in the state, the IU Health Bedford Hospital Sleep Disorders Center combines the latest technical equipment with a soothing testing environment in order to ensure your maximum care and comfort. Our Sleep Specialists—Anil Achaen, MD and Karl Yang, MD—see patients in Bedford twice a month.
