Newly Appointed Director of SBUMC Sleep Disorders Center Expects to Bring the High-Tech Facility into National Standing


Dr. Jorge M. Mallea Directs a Program to Research Conditions Affecting Millions Nationally

Jorge M. Mallea, M.D., Assistant Professor of Medicine and a specialist in Sleep Medicine, has been named Medical Director of the Sleep Disorders Center, a Stony Brook University Medical Center state-of-the art facility located in Smithtown, N.Y. Appointed by Richard N. Fine, M.D., Dean of the School of Medicine, Dr. Mallea heads a multidisciplinary staff that includes neurologists, pediatricians, and other specialists caring for those who suffer from sleep disorders and related conditions.

Patients evaluated at the SBUMC Sleep Disorders Center are tested in an environment that includes the newest technological advances used to monitor sleep studies. The Center provides sleep studies for Neurology, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, as well as clinical services for Internal Medicine.

"Dr. Malleaís knowledge of sleep disorders and his broad approach to treating and investigating these conditions is a great asset to the Medical Centerís growing sleep disorders program," says Dr. Fine.

"Our multidisciplinary team has the expertise to run clinical research on many types of sleep disorders, and over time results from these studies should have an impact on national standards of care," says Dr. Mallea, who expects the Center to attain accreditation from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) after a scheduled AASM review of the facility in August.

The Center, established in 1979, is one of the oldest sleep disorder programs in the United States. Accreditation from the AASM, the largest professional medical society in the field of sleep medicine in the United States, would help elevate the Centerís capacity for teaching and education. Dr. Mallea explains that the accreditation would allow the Center to train physicians seeking a one-year fellowship in Sleep Medicine, as well as run community-based public education programs.

AASM membership includes 6,000 clinicians, researchers, and other healthcare providers. The AASM and other professional organizations estimate that approximately 70 million people in the Unites States have at least one of the 81 official sleep disorders.

Before coming to Stony Brook, Dr. Mallea practiced at West Virginia University School of Medicine where he was Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine and staff physician in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. He held a joint position at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Martinsburg, W.Va.

Dr. Mallea is board certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, Critical Care Medicine, and Sleep Medicine. He is a member of the AASM, the American College of Chest Physicians, the American Thoracic Society, and the Society of Critical Care Medicine.

After receiving his M.D. degree from the Universidad Nacional de San Agustin School of Medicine in Arequipa, Peru, Dr. Mallea went on to complete residencies at New York Medical College in Manhattan and Saint Louis University in Missouri, where he began specializing in Sleep Medicine.

Dr. Mallea resides in Melville with his wife, Nami.
