Overview

Pierre Robin sequence, also called Pierre Robin syndrome, is a congenital condition in which an infant has a smaller-than-normal lower jaw, a tongue that falls back in his throat and difficulty breathing.

Craniofacial Anomalies Program

The Craniofacial Anomalies Program at Boston Children's Hospital provides a team approach to the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of children and adults with congenital facial deformities, such as Pierre Robin sequence. If your child has been suffering, our doctors can help.

Expert team

Our program is staffed by an experienced team of clinicians, all with specialized training in the care of children with craniofacial anomalies. Each year we treat more than 500 patients, 250 of them new patients, making our program one of the most experienced programs of its type in the country.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
