Sleep Clinic Melbourne
Helping you get
a better night's sleep
Melbourne Sleep Surgery provides advanced surgical solutions to achieve the best possible outcomes for adults and children suffering from snoring and sleep apnoea.
Melbourne Sleep Specialist offering an exceptional level of care
Melbourne Sleep Surgery is led by Mr Nathan Hayward, one of only a few ENT surgeons in Australia with specialist post-Fellowship training in Sleep Surgery (surgery for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea). We fully understand the far-reaching negative impacts of snoring and sleep apnoea in both adults and children and how they can affect daily life, relationships and result in physical and mental health issues. After a comprehensive assessment with our team, our mission is to ensure you fully understand the treatment options available to you and feel completely empowered to take the next step to achieve better sleep.
What you might see as just snoring or a "bad nights sleep" may be a serious medical condition. Sleep apnoea is diagnosed by collating a detailed patient history, a comprehensive airway examination and potentially other investigations.
Surgery for snoring is tailored to the characteristics of each individuals airway, and the structures involved in the noise generation. Some surgical treatments may be combined with non-surgical interventions to achieve the best outcomes.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnoea can leave you feeling awful all day, every day. It can also have severe negative health impacts. Surgery for OSA is different for everyone. No two patients are the same.
Watching your child snoring or struggle to breathe while they sleep can be a frightening experience for any caregiver. Sleep apnoea in children may be treated using a range of advanced procedures suitable for the younger patient.
Sleep apnoea can disrupt daily life leading to ongoing medical conditions such as high blood pressure and fatigue. Melbourne Sleep Surgery provides effective treatment from our sleep apnoea clinics in Melbourne and regional Victoria to help patients get a better night’s sleep.
Obstructive sleep apnoea is a complex disorder, and no two treatment programs are the same.
At Melbourne Sleep Surgery our sleep specialist (sometimes called a sleep doctor, sleep consultant or sleep apnea specialist by patients) will conduct a comprehensive history and tailored upper airway examination. This is the first step in diagnosing and treating obstructive sleep apnoea.
