Congenital Airway Abnormalities

Doctors at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone work as a team to treat children with congenital airway abnormalities, which are malformations, blockages, lesions, or cysts affecting the nasal cavity, tongue, esophagus, larynx, trachea, or lungs. These conditions can affect a child’s ability to breathe, swallow, or eat properly.

Our team of experts at the Pediatric Aerodigestive Center, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital, includes ear, nose, and throat specialists, as well as pulmonologists, craniofacial surgeons, gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists, surgeons, sleep specialists, and speech, swallowing, and feeding experts. They provide comprehensive, individualized care using the most advanced diagnostic testing and treatment.
