Conditions & Procedures

Conditions Treated:

  • Conditions involving airway dysfunction in conjunction with upper gastrointestinal symptoms and/or comorbid respiratory conditions
  • Congenital airway abnormalities (e.g. tracheo-esophageal fistula, laryngeal cleft, airway stenosis, preparation for airway reconstruction surgery, central and obstructive apnea)
  • Laryngomalacia with associated breathing and feeding issues or failure to thrive
  • Tracheo-bronchomalacia
  • Dysphagia and aspiration
  • Evaluation, treatment and management of tracheostomy patients pursuing decannulation
  • Chronic cough or wheezing that has not responded to therapy as expected
  • Vocal cord paralysis and voice disorders
  • Gastrointestinal motility disorders associated with breathing and feeding difficulty
  • Feeding and respiratory issues in neuromuscular disorder patients

  • Esophageal stricture

Procedures Performed:

  • Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy (rigid microlaryngoscopy, rigid/flexible bronchsocopy, esophagogastroduodenoscopy)
  • Complex open airway reconstruction
  • Endoscopic airway reconstruction
  • Esophageal pH and impedance probes
