Airway Stenosis Program

The Airway Stenosis Program within the Department of Head and Neck Surgery is geared towards treatment of breathing problems due to narrowing of the airway from the nose to the trachea. Specialized surgery is offered to treat narrowing of the airway and tracheostomy dependence. The Airway Stenosis Program is a multidisciplinary approach involving head and neck surgeons, thoracic surgeons, and pulmonologists, to provide comprehensive treatment of Airway Stenosis from the nose to the lungs. Treatment is individualized and includes a variety of operations including tracheal resection, cricotracheal resection, laryngotracheoplasty, and endoscopic laser procedures to open the airway for natural breathing. For more information, please visit the Airway Stenosis Program page on the Department of Head and Neck Surgery website.
