Why Choose Us for Airway Disorders

The Center for Pediatric Airway Disorders is the only one of its kind in the Greater Philadelphia region. As part of one of the top-ranked and largest children’s hospitals in the U.S., we have cared for children from all over the country and beyond. 

Families come here from around the globe to benefit from: 

  • Our experience. The airway team has treated some of the most complex airway disorders in the world. We are uniquely qualified to care for the most complex cases due to the depth and breadth of our experience.
  • Our team approach. A multidisciplinary, coordinated approach to care, bridging many specialties, makes it possible to meet the complex needs of the children who come to the Center.
  • Our commitment to the whole family. We specialize in family-centered care, providing many amenities and avenues of support for families of children with airway disorders, and keeping the family closely involved in the care plan.
  • Our focus on research. Through innovation and research, we are changing the course of treatment for many children with airway anomalies. Current research focuses include the outcomes of standard reconstructive approaches; the genetics of congenital airway lesions; the role of growth factors with subglottic stenosis and airway healing; voice evaluation in children after laryngotracheal reconstruction (LTR); and more.

Our Center for Pediatric Airway Disorders was designated a Frontier Program by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Frontier Programs are unique, cutting-edge programs that will forge important new discoveries, deliver novel therapies, and help even more children thrive.
