Pinnacle Sleep & Snoring

At Pinnacle Surgery we recognise the importance of a good night’s sleep. Poor sleep and snoring is a complex health problem that can have ongoing effects on overall physical and mental health.

Snoring can arise due to a number of factors. It may be due to a blocked nose, large tonsils, the shape of your jaw, or even due to altered activity in the brain itself. There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to snoring, and the most important aspect of your treatment is a thorough assessment by qualified sleep physicians and surgeons.

Pinnacle Surgery, on site at the Epworth Hospital in Richmond, Melbourne has direct links to the newly established sleep centre within the Epworth Hospital.

Our multidisciplinary team will take a personalised approach to your assessment, and our surgeons will aim to improve your sleep with a tailored approach, expert care, and the latest in surgical techniques.
