Brigham and Women’s Sleep Medicine and Endocrinology Center incorporates the Center for Weight Management and Metabolic Surgery, the Diabetes Program, General Endocrinology and Sleep Medicine into one suite, located on the fifth floor at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital. Also in the suite is a registered dietitian and a vendor who maintains continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines and bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) machines for sleep apnea patients.
Combining the four areas allows patients one stop shopping. For example, many of our patients have diabetes, sleep apnea, obesity or a combination of these conditions. These patients can find what they need to manage their health at Brigham and Women’s Sleep Medicine and Endocrinology Center. A patient with diabetes can see the experts at the Diabetes Program or a general endocrinologist and, if they are also overweight, they can be seamlessly referred to the Center for Weight Management and Metabolic Surgery. In addition, their being overweight may very well be a contributing factor to them having sleep apnea and they may need to see a sleep specialist. Brigham and Women’s Sleep Medicine and Endocrinology Center is pleased to offer a patient-centered model of care across several specialties in one convenient location.
