Airway and Swallowing Problems

Our otolaryngologists have special training in pediatric airway surgery to evaluate and treat children with a wide range of airway problems. We understand that children who have difficulty breathing must be evaluated thoughtfully and thoroughly. 

Stridor in Infants

We have experience treating infants who have noisy breathing, or stridor. This condition is often due to common conditions such as laryngomalacia, a collapse of tissue above the vocal cords. This requires appropriate diagnostic evaluation, medical management of associated conditions and occasional surgical intervention.

Endoscopic and Reconstructive Airway Surgery

Our pediatric surgeons are experts in a wide array of surgical interventions for airway problems that may require minimally invasive endoscopic techniques or, occasionally, a more aggressive reconstructive surgery. In addition, we treat severe airway problems, such as subglottic stenosis (narrowing of the subglottic airway), that require more intensive evaluation with radiologic imaging and operative endoscopy.
