Michael Oko: Consultant ENT Surgeon and Sleep Apnoea Specialist in London, Harley Street

Based in London’s Harley Street,  Michael Oko is a Consultant ENT Surgeon specialising in sleep apnoea, snoring and sleep disorders.  He also provides private treatment for a range of complaints affecting the ear, nose and throat, including sinus disease and swallowing problems.

ENT training and experience

Mr Oko qualified in medicine in 1986 and undertook his specialist training in Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery at St Mary’s and Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital in London.  In 1995, his work on instrument design and innovation led him to be placed as one of the 12 finalists for the Surgeon in Training medal awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.  Following a lecturership in ENT Surgery at the University of Glasgow, in 2005 he was appointed Consultant Surgeon for ENT and Clinical Lead for the Sleep Apnoea Service at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT).  He served as Clinical Lead for ENT at ULHT from 2007 to 2011, and also as Clinical Lead for General Surgery from 2009-2011.

An expert on sleep disorders and snoring

Since founding the Sleeping Disorders Centre at the Pilgrim Hospital in Boston, Lincolnshire in 2006, Mr Oko has gone on to open satellite clinics at Johnson Hospital in Spalding and at 150 Harley Street, in the heart of London’s medical district.  His pioneering sleep service at ULHT was the recipient of the NHS East Midlands Healthcare Award for service transformation in 2008, and in 2011 Mr Oko himself won the Middle East Hospitals award for respiratory excellence in recognition of his work on raising awareness of sleep apnoea in the region.

As a member of the Department of Health’s Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Working Group, Mr Oko is actively involved in highlighting the risks associated with undiagnosed sleep apnoea, and in campaigning for better research and facilities for the condition.

Sleeping Disorders Centre:  treatment of sleep apnoea and snoring in Harley Street

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a condition where the airway becomes blocked during sleep, interrupting sleep patterns and causing a person to feel constantly fatigued.  Most people with OSA also snore loudly, adversely affecting their partner’s sleep as well as their own.

Led by Mr Oko, the Sleeping Disorders Centre in Harley Street, London, is a new, innovative service designed to provide fast, accurate diagnosis and treatment of sleep problems, including sleep apnoea and snoring.  The service is available to both NHS and private patients.

Mr Michael Oko is available for consultation in Harley Street every Friday from 10.30AM to 6PM. His initial fee is £250 with follow ups costing £200.

"CPAP looked after my symptoms but did nothing for my wife’s sleep pattern. Although at times we probably seemed like the patients from hell Michael Oko and his team never gave up on us.
