Welcome to Cairo Sleep CenterThe First Sleep Medicine Center in Egypt
You couldn’t sleep last night. You struggle during the day to stay awake and alert to accomplish your duties. You doze off at work in front of your laptop! Your friends catch you falling asleep during a lecture! And so many more embarrassing situations that lack of sleep puts you in. But what is the reason behind this? Does the loud snoring of your partner disturb you during sleep? Do you go to bed early and struggle to fall asleep but end up staring at the ceiling all night long? Could it possibly be a problem like insomnia, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) or the many others? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we can help you.
At Cairo Sleep Center, enhancing your sleep health is our mission. Our team of experts in sleep medicine offer consultations to pinpoint the reason behind your problems. To further diagnose and investigate your suffering, a sleep study (polysomnography) is often required. For that, our clinic is equipped with labs where a sleep study is conducted overnight in a hotel-room-like atmosphere designed to make you feel comfortable. A sleep technologist and a physician are also available all night long to ensure that the study is going smoothly and provide assistance when required. We also offer different solutions like tailored treatment plans as well as aid devices.
To help improve the quality of sleep of thousands of people, Dr. Shahira Loza was the first to introduce the concept of sleep medicine in Egypt and the Middle East. To increase the awareness about this medicine as medical subspecialty dealing with only sleep and the diagnosis and treatment of the associated disorders, Dr. Shahira Loza went on and established the first medical center in Egypt dedicated for sleep medicine and sleep disorders.
