Pediatric Sleep Medicine Program

Dr. Craig Canapari with a patient.

Our program is the regional leader in diagnosing and treating a wide range of sleep problems in infants, toddlers, adolescents and teens. These problems may stem from medical, behavioral or developmental issues, which we will help you sort out. No matter what, we promise to offer comprehensive, compassionate care in a warm, child-friendly environment.

Nonrespiratory sleep complaints we treat include:

  • Insomnia, including difficulties falling asleep or nocturnal awakenings

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness

  • Restless leg syndrome

  • Sleep disturbance including parasomnias (sleep walking, night terrors, nightmares, enuresis)

  • Narcolepsy  

Respiratory sleep problems include: 

  • The evaluation of suspected obstructive sleep apnea in children with snoring, noisy breathing, disrupted sleep, or daytime sleepiness and/or attentional problems

  • Infants with apparent life threatening events

  • Respiratory complications of neuromuscular disease

  • Pre- and post-operative evaluation for scoliosis, spina bifida, cleft palate and other neurosurgical and craniofacial disorders

  • Determination of respiratory needs for oxygen and ventilator support

  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration and management
