  • Expertise and experience. Mayo Clinic doctors who treat children for pediatric obstructive sleep apnea are pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists with extensive expertise in sleep medicine.

    Pediatric sleep services are offered through the Center for Sleep Medicine at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota. The Center for Sleep Medicine is fully accredited by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and staffed by specialists, nurses and technologists trained in management of sleep disorders. Mayo Clinic doctors see about 450 children with obstructive sleep apnea each year.

  • Team approach. A team of doctors trained in treating children (pediatricians), brain and nervous system conditions (neurologists), heart and blood vessel conditions (cardiologists), lung and breathing conditions (pulmonologists), mental health conditions (psychiatrists and psychologists), and pediatric ear, nose and throat conditions (otorhinolaryngologists), as well as doctors trained in dental specialties (orthodontists and dentists) and oral and maxillofacial surgery will work together to diagnose and treat your child. The multidisciplinary nature of the team means doctors can manage children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including Down syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome and cerebral palsy.
  • Research. Mayo Clinic doctors and researchers study new diagnosis and treatment options for pediatric obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders and may participate in clinical trials.
