Sleep disorders treated
Often, certain conditions involving the heart, lungs, or weight are related to sleep problems. Getting treated for a sleep disorder is a positive first step toward regaining healthy sleep and improving your overall health.
We treat sleep disorders, such as:
- Circadian rhythm sleep disorders

Sleep disorder testing
Home sleep studies
Home sleep studies are a convenient option for patients to be tested for sleep apnea with the comfort of sleeping at home. There are many different types of home sleep studies. Your ordering physician will determine the type you should complete.
In-lab sleep studies
A sleep study requires an overnight stay in our clinic and is considered an outpatient visit by your insurance company. These studies are conducted at the UCHealth Sleep Lab – Longs Peak Hospital.
Sleep disorder treatments
This includes an experienced educator to help you through any issues with therapy, problems with the mask or problems with the CPAP machine.
This therapy is designed for patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea who haven’t had success with CPAP. Inspire consists of a breathing sensor and stimulator with a small battery that’s surgically implanted and delivers a mild stimulation to key muscles to keep your airway open during sleep.
Initial consultation visits are available at Longs Peak Hospital through Dr. Kelli Janata and if it is determined that you could be a candidate for Inspire therapy, you will be referred to University of Colorado Hospital for a clinic visit with Dr. Katherine Green then a drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) at Broomfield Hospital, which is a test where a flexible telescope is inserted through the nose to figure out where the obstruction is happening during sleep.
Inspire therapy is performed as an outpatient procedure at Broomfield Hospital and any follow-up visits post-procedure can be done at Longs Peak Hospital.
