The three main components of BOAS can be corrected surgically, usually with good to excellent results.
- The stenotic nostrils can be widened so that air can flow easily into the nasal cavity (rhinoplasty).
- The elongated soft palate can be trimmed to an appropriate length so that it will no longer interfere with normal airflow into the trachea (palatoplasty).
- Everted laryngeal saccules can be removed, thus improving the size of the laryngeal lumen (saccule excision). In some cases, enlarged tonsils are removed (tonsillectomy).
All fixed-price packages include the surgery required to treat a single, commonly diagnosed clinical condition. Should the clinical condition be more complex, or should the patient have medical co-morbidities (e.g., diabetes, heart disease, hypothyroidism, etc) a supplemental charge may be applied.
Should CT or MRI be needed these are priced in addition to the package price.
