The Aerodigestive Program at Riley at IU Health offers a coordinated approach to inpatient and outpatient care for children with airway disorders, tracheostomies and feeding and respiratory issues associated with neuromuscular disorders.
Your child will receive advanced medical and surgical care that brings together pediatric specialists across disciplines, including otolaryngology, pulmonology, sleep medicine, a feeding/nutrition team, pediatric surgery, gastroenterology and craniofacial surgery. Other members of this multidisciplinary team include a dedicated patient coordinator, pediatric nurse practitioner, speech therapist, respiratory therapist and social worker.
