Treatments offered

A few common treatments offered in sleep medicine at Preetham Neuro Centre are as follows:


Medications are prescribed to treat certain sleep disorders such as insomnia, narcolepsy, and restless leg syndrome. Medications can help improve sleep quality and reduce the symptoms of these conditions.

Oral Appliances

These are devices that help treat snoring and sleep apnea. The oral appliances are worn in the mouth during sleep and work by repositioning the tongue and jaw to keep the airway open.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Therapy

This is a treatment for sleep apnea, a condition where a person's breathing stops and starts during sleep. A CPAP machine delivers a continuous stream of air pressure to the airway, keeping it open and preventing breathing interruptions.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

It helps to treat insomnia and other sleep disorders. CBT focuses on changing negative thoughts and behaviours that can interfere with sleep and replacing them with positive thoughts and behaviours.

Light Therapy

This treatment is used to treat circadian rhythm disorders, such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and jet lag. Light therapy involves exposure to bright light, which can help reset the body's natural sleep-wake cycle.


In some cases, surgery may be recommended to treat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Surgical procedures can help remove excess tissue in the airway or reposition the jaw to improve breathing during sleep.
