assessment & Treatment

Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia) is a condition in which the thin piece of skin under the baby’s tongue (the lingual frenulum) is abnormally short and may restrict the movement of the tongue. The most immediate impact of a tongue-tie is on a baby’s ability to breastfeed effectively. It may interfere with a baby’s ability to latch and suckle at the breast.

The procedure to treat tongue and lip ties is called a frenotomy. I am one of the only practitioners in the Illawarra that works to assess, diagnose and, with the GPs at Woonona Medical Practice, treat ties.

If you think your baby may have a tongue or lip tie don't hesitate to make an appointment for assessment today, it could save your breastfeeding relationship.

Telehealth or virtual appointment is NOT appropriate for tongue tie assessment.


​At Woonona we assess and treat babies up to 6 months of age. ​If your baby is older than 6 months (up to 12 months) or you are from the Sydney area, I recommend making an appointment at Premier Health in Kogarah by phoning (02) 9581 8888.
