Sleep Apnea Surgery

Sleep Apnea Treatment

  • Dr. van Wyk is asked to be involved to assess if surgery is an option in cases where both Mandibular Advancement Splints and CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) Therapy have failed. 
  • The surgery will be discussed in detail during your visit, including a detailed discussion on success rates and risks.
  • Please bring a friend of family member along.
  • Please remember to bring along all previous sleep studies, your Mandibular Advancement Splint and a recording of your sleep (there are several app’s for this)
  • As part of your assessment you will likely have a small camera (scope) inserted via the nostril to see the nasal and throat areas. This is well tolerated by most and takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
