Guthrie Offers Sleep Studies in Three Locations in Twin Tiers

Guthrie’s Sleep Center offers overnight sleep studies to test individuals for a wide range of sleep problems, such as sleep apnea, periodic limb movement disorder, narcolepsy, parasomnia, and nocturnal seizures.

Guthrie uses several techniques to alleviate sleep issues for patients:

• CPAP/Bi-PAP – to help patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) sleep normally by forcing open the air passages of the throat.
• Surgery – uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), somnoplasty and snorplasty are surgical procedures that either reduce or stiffen the tissues of the palate
• Oral appliances - specialty devices that are designed to reduce obstruction

Your patients can begin the process of gauging the quality of their sleep with a Sleep Assessment available on the Guthrie website. Click here to view it.

For patient convenience, Guthrie performs sleep studies at various locations in the Twin Tiers, including Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital, Sayre, PA; Guthrie Troy Community Hospital in Troy, PA; and HealthWorks Wellness and Fitness Center in Erwin, NY. For more information call 570-887-4639.
