Respiratory disorders

Diagnosis and treatment for sleep-related respiratory disorders in modern sleep laboratories. Two laboratories are especially equipped for newborns, children and adults. In cooperation with the Department of Orthodontics and Otorhino­ laryngology we can offer the whole range of treatments.


Severe malformations such as the Pierre Robin Sequence are treated with the innovative therapy concept “Tübinger Atmungsgaumenplatte” (Tübinger palate plate). This plate closes the open palate, induces growth of the mandible and especially facilitates breathing. Cooperation partners are the Department of Orthodontics and the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
