International Surgical Sleep Society


Welcome to the International Surgical Sleep Society, the world’s preeminent organization dedicated to the surgical evaluation and treatment of patients with sleep disorders. The ISSS holds international scientific meetings that enable surgeons from around the world to discuss advances in sleep surgery and to share their research findings. These meetings have provided the foundation for ongoing ISSS research initiatives that will help patients with snoring or obstructive sleep apnea and the surgeons who care for them.


ISSS meetings bring together many of the world’s experts in sleep surgery for presentations and lively exchanges about novel treatments and innovative research. These international conferences have been held throughout the world, reflecting our commitment to sharing experiences and insights to advance the field. Learn more about our last meeting on April 15-16, 2016 in Sao Paulo, Brazil!  Our next meeting will occur on May 5-6, 2017 in Los Angeles, California, USA.
