Course Overview

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Hypopnea Syndrome (OSAHS) is a disease with increasing prevalence. The application of surgery to the treatment for OSAHS is a growing field and this course was created to show-case the up-to-date surgical procedures available to treat those who cannot tolerate non-surgical treatment options. This two-day virtual course will consist of narrated live surgery video that will demonstrate how to do specific OSAHS procedures. This course is an important starting point for all specialists who want to explore sleep breathing disorder surgery.
