Sleep Center Overview
A restful night’s sleep is essential to good health – yet millions of Americans have sleep disorders, many of which go unrecognized, leaving sufferers to endure fatigue and other symptoms needlessly. A sleep disorder can interfere with your ability to accomplish daily activities.
The Freeman Sleep Center is a multidisciplinary specialty clinic that provides diagnosis and treatment for people, ages four and up, who experience problems with poor sleep. We take a comprehensive approach to treating all sleep problems, including snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, restless legs, narcolepsy, fatigue, excessive daytime sleepiness, nocturnal seizures and sleep behaviors such as sleepwalking and adjustment to shift work.
Poor sleep can impact other medical conditions such as metabolic disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, cardiovascular disease and pain. Our team is experienced in understanding and handling even the most complex clinical situations.

Sleep medicine Service
Freeman is the first and only health system within a 70-mile radius of Joplin to offer Inspire® therapy, a new treatment option for patients with obstructive sleep apnea. This innovative solution can offer relief to sleep apnea sufferers who cannot tolerate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy.
Inspire is the only FDA-approved OSA treatment that works inside your body to treat the root cause of sleep apnea. Inspire works inside the body with a patient’s natural breathing process to treat sleep apnea. Mild stimulation opens the airway during sleep, enabling oxygen to flow naturally. The patient uses a small handheld remote to turn Inspire on before bed and off when they wake up.
