We specialize in ALL sleep disorders, including complex neurological sleep disorders and high altitude sleep problems.
As sleep is the only natural regenerative state of the brain, sleep of satisfactory quantity and quality makes our waking hours more productive and enjoyable.
Lack of good sleep over a period of time may result in less ability to learn and retain information; increase in injury and accidents; serious health issues; depression; premature aging; loss of sex drive; weight gain; diminished memory; impaired judgment and a general lesser quality of life.
Steps to diagnose sleep disorders differ from case to case and involve a thorough history and physical to determine risk factors. Select tests to measure various physiological parameters are used as needed. Sleep studies conducted in a sleep lab may be recommended.
Accordingly treatment is tailored to each individual patient and depends on the physician's findings.
Information for Hospitals and Institutions
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is present in about 30% of hospitalized patients, many of whom are undiagnosed. To address this challenge, a multidisciplinary OSA clinical effectiveness team was formed at St Anthony Central Hospital in Denver, CO, consisting of our physicians in collaboration with Centura Health. We have developed comprehensive inpatient screening protocols, management protocols, policies, procedures and communication tools.

Dr. Lange, What a difference your diagnosis of my sleep apnea has made. I had the dental appliance made. I have been using it very successfully for several months now. I sleep better, get up much less frequently, don’t wake my husband, and have more energy. Thank you again for your excellent education regarding this condition. I will be sharing what I learned with others who may be interested. Blessings, -JB
