Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
A wide range of treatments are available for children with voice, resonance, and swallowing disorders, including:
Minimally invasive techniques, such as ultrasound-guided BOTOX® injections into the salivary glands, can address swallowing problems complicated by drooling or salivary aspiration. BOTOX® injections have proven to be a safe and highly effective way to address these conditions, and they may be not only a therapeutic, but a diagnostic step in deciding whether a more aggressive surgery is needed.
BOTOX® injections are also diagnostically and therapeutically beneficial for certain swallowing disorders such as cricopharyngeal achalasia where the entrance into the GI tract does not open properly. Although less common in children, certain movement disorders of the voice box are best treated with this minimally invasive approach.
When surgery is indicated, our doctors are experienced in performing the latest techniques for correcting the condition, including the full range of microlaryngeal surgical procedures, such as injection laryngoplasty for treating vocal cord paralysis, phonomicrosurgery for masses of the vocal chords, and other soft palate and pharyngeal procedures for treating resonance problems.
