Project Description:

The project seeks to measure the improvement after a variety of sleep surgical procedures in children. Children with sleep apnea often are recommended wearing a mask to help their airway but few tolerate this device. We perform a variety of surgeries to improve the airway but the results haven’t been reported in the literature. This project would be a retrospective chart review. Several related projects are available.
