University Hawaii Resident now back to Serve our Sleep Patients!

Originally from Colorado, Dr. Anderson completed medical school at the University of Colorado followed by residency in Family Medicine at University of Hawaii John Burns School of Medicine. While a resident on rotation at the Sleep and Insomnia Center, he was intrigued by the many different sleep disorders and the significant difficulties that they cause in patients’ lives. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Sleep Medicine before coming to join us!

Nicholas Anderson MD is a Sleep Medicine physician who specializes in the treatment of sleep disorders including sleep apnea (obstructive, mixed, and central), insomnia, restless leg syndrome, parasomnias, delayed and advanced sleep phase, and general pediatric sleep disorders. He is passionate about caring for those with sleep disorders and helping improve quality of life by assisting patients to achieve high-quality sleep. Consistent with his background in Family Medicine, he aims to take a well-rounded and comprehensive approach that is patient-centered and considers the many factors in life that impact health. He is also passionate about advocating for increased awareness of sleep disorders in medical education and among the general public. He believes strongly that high-quality sleep should be considered a priority in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and helping to improve other chronic diseases. Ultimately his goal is to do what he can to help others regularly achieve a good night’s sleep.

In his spare time, he is an avid Denver sports fan and enjoys playing sports including basketball and tennis, spending time outdoors with his wife and children, and participating in his church.

Emerging Targets for Acute Seizure Management

August 2nd Wednesday 12:45PM

He holds the Rubin Brown Distinguished Chair in Pediatric neurology. Dr. Sankar’s laboratory research has addressed the mechanisms of seizure-induced injury and epileptogenicity in the developing brain, and is funded by the NINDS, NIH. Present research also includes investigations on improving the throughput for screening compounds for antiepileptogenic action on the developing brain and modeling the comorbidity of depression that accompanies epileptogenesis. Recent work by Drs. Mazarati and Sankar have demonstrated connections between the epileptic state, physiologic stress, inflammation and how these factors modify the serotonergic tone in the brain stem-hippocampal pathways.
