SLEEP CLINIC

 

Mr Nalaka de Silva an ENT Surgeon and  Dr Juan Mulder a Respiratory Physician have collaborated to bring you the Combined Specialists Sleep Apnoea Clinic ( CSSC ) to the Mornington Peninsula in Melbourne. 

 

This holistic approach to treating sleep apnea and snoring stems from the two Melbourne based doctors desire to combine their knowledge and skill to bring best possible care for the patient. As a result we have been able to achieve over 95% success in our patients. Over 90% of those who underwent surgery have avoided the need for a CPAP machine (view links below for further details and discussion of our results).

 

At the sleep clinic, patients will undergo a comprehensive combined evaluation from a respiratory and a surgical specialist point of view. The two specialist’s clinical findings will then be correlated with the patient's sleep study results. The patient will be presented with all of the findings and possible methods of managing their condition comprehensively considered and discussed.

 

Latest Sleep Apnea Surgery, and medical treatment options, will be presented to the patient. If the patient and family wish to proceed with treatment, they then can make the final decision on which avenue best suits themselves and their lifestyle, in their tailored treatment and recovery process.

Audit and research of our surgical outcome have shown that over 90% have avoided the need for a CPAP machine. We have presented our results at the 2020 National Conference (ASOHNS)  and hope to continue our research and publish our surgical technique and data.
