Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Diagnosis
Sleep apnoea is diagnosed by collating a detailed patient history, a comprehensive airway examination and potentially other investigations. What you might see as just snoring or a "bad nights sleep" may be a serious medical condition.
Surgery for snoring
Some surgical treatments may be combined with non-surgical interventions to achieve the best outcomes. Surgery for snoring is tailored to the characteristics of each individuals airway, and the structures involved in the noise generation.
Surgery for Sleep Apnoea
Surgery for OSA is different for everyone. No two patients are the same. It's important to understand that untreated obstructive sleep apnoea can leave you feeling awful all day, every day and can have severe negative health impacts.
Sleep apnoea in children
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.
