The Aerodigestive Center at Cincinnati Children’s is internationally known for our approach to caring for chronically ill children with complex airway, pulmonary, upper digestive tract, sleep and feeding disorders. Thanks to our comprehensive approach to diagnosis and care, we are one of the best centers in the world at meeting your child’s unique needs in an effective, time-efficient manner.
Our core team consists of faculty from six divisions at Cincinnati Children’s:
This close collaboration among specialists creates advantages for your family:
During your child’s initial evaluation, she will be seen by all of the appropriate subspecialists. They may come together in an operating room to conduct the evaluation, so that they can consult with each other during the exam. After the evaluation, the physicians will meet with you to discuss their initial findings. Our specialists will continue to work together to develop a unique treatment plan for your child, and a nurse practitioner will contact you to discuss the plan with you and your family.
This coordination of care is essential to your child’s well-being, since children who come to the center often have more than one disorder. It’s critical that all specialists assess your child to develop a clear picture of his overall health and the appropriateness of various interventions.
Pediatric nurse practitioners work closely with physicians and families to ensure coordinated care. They also serve as valuable resources, being readily available to answer questions and address concerns.
We consider you, your child and your family to be integral parts of our team. The family-centered care philosophy is a core value in every aspect of our clinical and research practice.
At the heart of family-centered care is the belief that healthcare providers and the family are partners, working together to best meet the needs of the child.
You and your family provide your child’s primary strength and support. Your insights can give us a better understanding of how to improve programs and create more effective systems.
The center includes an active clinical research program that focuses on improving clinical care. Our research focuses on quality-of-life measures, efficiency of treatment and patient outcomes.
