    • Aerodigestive Collaborative

      To better coordinate and improve care for pediatric patients with
      complex aerodigestive problems, a team of CHoR specialists meets
      monthly to consult, develop treatment plans, and coordinate referrals,
      procedures and follow-up.

      The group of approximately 20 providers, known as the Aerodigestive Collaborative, includes specialists from:

      Procedures performed by otolaryngology, pulmonary medicine and gastroenterology are often needed to fully evaluate disorders affecting the airway and digestive tract and a team goal is to coordinate procedures so a child only undergoes anesthesia once.

      • Aphonia
      • Bronchomalacia

      • Esophageal web or stricture
      • Gastroesophageal reflux (GER)
