We are pleased to announce the opening of our Woolcock NeuroSleep Clinic in Camperdown.
Our new world-leading medical centre will specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders, neurodegenerative and/or mental health problems. Our dedicated clinicians are at the forefront of international health research, ensuring our patients get access to the very latest approaches in care.
Our unique, interdisciplinary approach ensures patients get access to a range of specialists under one roof with expert skills to treat different aspects of their conditions including neurology, sleep medicine, psychiatry, geriatrics, and rehabilitation medicine.
Sleep-wake disruptions are commonly seen in neurological and mental health diseases. Not only can these disruptions impact negatively on the primary condition, they can often be an early feature that aids in pre-clinical diagnosis. These bi-directional relationships between sleep and disease form a cornerstone for much of the research we are leading in the field.
Increasingly, the consequences of sleep disorders are being linked to loss of overall health, well-being and longevity. In particular, poor sleep is associated with brain-ageing related health problems and diseases.
We offer an integrated service for patients who often have overlapping comorbidities. These may include:
- Sleep Disorders
- Parkinson's Disease and related conditions
- Memory Loss, Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease
- Mental Health and Depression
- Cognitive Impairment
The Woolcock NeuroSleep Clinic is part of the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research, a prestigious and internationally recognised, sleep and respiratory medical research institute. This allows our patients access to the best and latest approaches in the care, treatment and preventative measures in sleep and respiratory disorders.
Working with the best and brightest researchers across Australian and international universities and research institutes, the Woolcock leads the way in an inter-disciplinary approach. Our network of internationally linked researchers, with expertise from a wide range of disciplines, collaborate together to focus on somnology – the science of sleep – bringing us closer to answering these fundamental questions about sleep and ageing and devising strategic interventions.
