At the Upper Airway Center, we diagnose and care for children with upper airway obstruction and sleep apnea with underlying conditions such as:
Watch a Q & A session on chronic obstructive sleep apnea in children with Down syndrome, Pierre Robin syndrome or micrognathia.
To properly diagnose obstructive sleep apnea, the majority of children will need a sleep study. The Upper Airway Center strongly recommends that the sleep study be done at a pediatric facility using pediatric scoring. The results of the study are shared during the multidisciplinary team meeting and a treatment plan is developed that will then be shared with the family.
Our physicians specialize in a broad scope of surgical and nonsurgical treatments, depending on the needs of the child. Treatments will depend on the condition or cause of the obstruction but can include nasal surgery, palatal radiofrequency or hypopharyngeal surgery.
In our Upper Airway Center, we care for children with a variety of conditions.
