Tracheomalacia is a collapse of the airway that can make it difficult for your child to breathe. Surgical treatment depends on the type and location of your child’s tracheomalacia. Watch Russell Jennings, MD, co-director of the Esophageal and Airway Treatment Center at Boston Children’s Hospital, explain more about how these approaches are performed.

The Esophageal and Airway Treatment Center is a leader in the development of pioneering treatments for tracheomalacia, esophageal atresia, and related conditions. Dr. Jennings and his colleagues are experts in the use of minimally invasive procedures, which can result in less pain and scarring and faster recovery for patients.
