Maxillomandibular Advancement

At the Yale Airway and Sleep Disorders Program, our exemplary team of sleep disorder specialist/pulmonologists, plastic surgeons, ENTs, and dentists specialize in treating obstructive sleep apnea and obstructed breathing through surgical procedures and supplementary treatments.

If you or your child has obstructive sleep apnea due to jaw deformities, maxillomandibular advancement surgery can help by enlarging the airway in the palate and tongue region by moving the upper and lower jaws forward. 

Understandably, the thought of surgery can seem frightening, especially if it involves your child. We know you might have many questions and concerns. Our goal is to provide you with the best medical treatment and supportive care before, during, and after the surgery.
