This clinic offers a readily accessible pathway to a range of diagnostic and treatment options for several sleep related problems . One such issue is Sleep Apnoea, a common and potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts as you sleep. Although sleep apnoea is treatable, it often goes unrecognized. Learning how to identify the warning signs, how to distinguish it from normal snoring, is the first step to overcoming sleep apnoea and getting a good night’s sleep.
This chronic sleep deprivation results in daytime sleepiness, slow reflexes, poor concentration, and an increased risk of accidents. Sleep apnoea can also lead to serious health problems over time, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and weight gain. But with treatment you can control the symptoms, get your sleep back on track, and start enjoy being refreshed and alert every day.

The ClosureFast procedure frequently asked questions
Q: Is the ClosureFast procedure painful?
A: Most patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the ClosureFast procedure. Your physician should give you a local or regional anesthetic to numb the treatment area.
Q: How quickly can I resume normal activity?
A: Patients treated with the ClosureFast procedure may resume normal activities more quickly than patients who undergo surgical vein stripping or laser ablation. With the ClosureFast procedure, the average patient typically resumes normal activities within a few days. For a few weeks following the treatment, your vein specialist may recommend a regular walking regimen and suggest you refrain from very strenuous activities (heavy lifting, for example) or prolonged periods of standing.
Q: How soon after treatment will my symptoms improve?
A: Most patients report a noticeable improvement in their symptoms within one to two weeks following the procedure.
Q: Is there any scarring, bruising, or swelling after the procedure?
A: Most patients report limited to no scarring, bruising, or swelling following the ClosureFast procedure using the ClosureFast™ catheter.
Q: How is the ClosureFast procedure different from endovenous laser?
A: Although the ClosureFast procedure and 980 nm endovenous laser ablation are both minimally invasive procedures, a comparative, multicenter study showed that the ClosureFast procedure was associated with statistically significant lower rates of pain, bruising, and complications. Patients undergoing the ClosureFast procedure also reported improvements in quality of life measures up to four times faster than patients treated with 980 nm endovenous laser ablation.
Q: How is the ClosureFast procedure different from vein stripping?
A: During vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf, and a tool is threaded through the diseased vein to pull the vein out of the leg. With the ClosureFast procedure, only one small incision is made at the insertion site and the vein is then treated and left in place. This minimally invasive approach reduces the likelihood of pain and bruising associated with vein stripping surgery. If so, you may be suffering from chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). More than 30 million people are affected by varicose veins or CVI in the U.S., with only 1.9 million seeking treatment annually, leaving the vast majority undiagnosed and untreated. Without treatment, those with the disease may experience progressive symptoms, such as swollen legs, skin damage and/or ulcers that can be debilitating and significantly impact their quality of life. Fortunately, with proper treatment, that outcome is preventable.
Kingsbridge Private Hospital is now offering a Vasectomy Clinic. A Vasectomy is the only method offering men a permanent contraception solution with over 99% effectiveness.
A vasectomy does not require an overnight stay and men opting to have a vasectomy will be reassured to know that the procedure is usually carried out in around 10 minutes by our experts.
Before choosing to have a vasectomy it is important to be sure that it is right for you. Vasectomies are reversible under some conditions but success is not guaranteed and surgery is required in order to perform a reversal. For this reason it is important to look at a vasectomy as a permanent contraceptive method.
A vasectomy may be appropriate for you if:
A vasectomy is performed by one of our medical experts. It is extremely quick and straightforward and is performed on the same day. The procedure involves sealing the vas deferens tubes that carry sperm. This stops sperm entering ejaculated fluid.
Will Vasectomy Affect My Sex Drive?
A vasectomy will not affect your sex drive. The procedure does not affect the production of male hormones in the body. Following a vasectomy a man will continue to enjoy sex, and produce the same amount of fluid when he ejaculates. The only difference is that ejaculate will no longer contain sperm.
How Effective Is A Vasectomy?
Vasectomy is over 99% effective, so it and female sterilisation are the most reliable forms of contraception. After a vasectomy samples are required to ensure that the vasectomy has been successful.
During this period it is recommended that you use an alternative form of contraception such as condoms to prevent the risk of an unplanned pregnancy. Once your samples show no sperm, you can stop using alternative contraceptives.
Remember, a vasectomy offers no protection against sexually transmitted infections or HIV/AIDS.
Any Other Considerations?
· You will need to avoid contact sports and heavy physical exercise for at least four weeks after a vasectomy
· You will also need to avoid short haul flights for 48 hours and long haul flights for 7-10 days after a vasectomy
