We consistently treat a large number of patients referred to us from all over Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia.

Patients and families

Obstructions of the respiratory tract can present with difficulties in breathing and maintaining oxygen saturation in the body. These compromised airway conditions often require a tracheostomy (an opening in the windpipe) to relieve such an obstruction. Our unit has performed a large number of airway reconstructions in children and adults.

Our goal is to help find a solution and successfully treat your child or loved ones’ compromised airway condition. We serve as a major referral center for airway reconstruction for the European Union and also around the world. Our vast experience in the compromised airway allows our unit to offer the latest in airway reconstruction.

It is a unit of the Service of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, of the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV).
