Dr Papadopoulos is one of Australia's leading sleep medicine physicians and is widely known for his work with sleep studies in children, and in particular children with AD/HD special needs, orthodontic problems, gastro-intestinal issues and need for CPAP therapy.
Dr Papadopoulos was admitted to FRACP in General Paediatrics in 2002.
In 2003 he became the first prospectively accredited Level 2 Paediatric sleep physician in Australasia (highest possible level).
He then established the Paediatric Sleep Unit at St George Private Hospital.
This continues to be the only Private Hospital Paediatric Sleep Unit in NSW to offer ASA/NATA accredited Paediatric Sleep Laboratory services including diagnostic studies and CPAP. Our first-in-Sydney ASA / NATA accreditation for these services, including a commendation for our CPAP service, makes us unique amongst paediatric sleep laboratories in Sydney.
Dr Papadopoulos also established Australia’s first multidisciplinary Sleep Clinic for developmentally delayed children, the adolescent sleep unit at St George Hospital and the first paediatric sleep clinic within the Department of Orthodontics at Sydney Dental Hospital.
He is a conjoint lecturer at the University of New South Wales and at the University of Sydney, directs the Paediatric Sleep Disorders Unit at St George Private hospital and is a staff specialist sleep paediatrician at St George Public Hospital.
