Sleep Apnea in Children

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone are experienced in evaluating and treating infants and children with sleep apnea, a condition that causes frequent pauses in breathing during sleep. Our team includes otolaryngologists, who treat conditions of the ear, nose, and throat, as well as sleep medicine experts. Pulmonologists and craniofacial surgeons, who specialize in plastic and reconstructive surgery of the face and skull, are also involved in your child’s care.

Our experts collaborate to make an accurate diagnosis, determine the underlying cause of your child’s sleep apnea, and recommend the most appropriate treatment.

NYU Langone doctors also evaluate and manage obstructive sleep apnea in adults.
