Surgery for adult obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) plays a key role in contemporary management paradigms, most frequently as either a second-line treatment or in a facilitatory capacity.

This position statement has been reviewed and approved by the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA) Clinical Committee.
