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 in New York, USA. 

Unfortunately with great disappointment and a heavy heart the 11th ISSS meeting has been cancelled, despite having been re-scheduled and re-located to Wollongong January 2021.

The ISSS Board concurred with a cancellation decision during a special meeting on August 21st. 

We have pursued multiple pathways in an attempt to hold a scientific meeting, including hybrid and fully online options, but lack of progress on travel without strict quarantine and inadequate interest in a purely online meeting has left us with no choice.

We thank all those who agreed to speak, attend, participate and in particular sponsor the meeting, and hope in a future non-COVID world you will all once again commit to an Australian ISSS Meeting.

Please keep an eye on ISSS Newsletters, Website and Social Media postings, as specially convened Short Webinar Panels are being planned as a means of providing Scientific Updates and Discussions.
