The treatment for Pierre Robin syndrome, as with many birth conditions, varies depending on the severity of each individual patient. A breathing tube (CPAP) will be inserted up the nose and into the airways in moderate cases of Pierre Robin syndrome to prevent the airway from being blocked. More severe cases of this condition may require our oral surgeons to perform surgery in order to prevent the upper airway from being blocked. Some children need a tracheostomy, or a surgical hole in the windpipe to aid with breathing. A tracheostomy could potentially be avoided with the aid of neonatal distraction osteogenesis, depending on the severity of your child’s Pierre Robin syndrome in New York City. At Staten Island Oral Surgery, we provide the most advanced surgical techniques and procedures for our patients so that the care and service you receive with us is the best possible care and service available. Working closely with Dr. Vastola, a pediatric ENT physician, Dr. Hoffman has assembled a team to treat this complex and frustrating syndrome.
