Featuring topics by a wide range health care professionals across the specialties who care for children with these disorders, Pediatric Aerodigestive Disorders presents a clinical set of problems that are disease, not specialty specific, and approaches them from the various standpoints of the different specialties to highlight how each can work together to identify a unified diagnosis and proper treatment.

This philosophy is based on a five-year experience between the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children, where a core team of pediatric otolaryngologists, pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and speech-language pathologists see patients together, viewing them from differing perspectives, using different tests to arrive at diagnoses, and performing joint procedures as necessary.

The outcome is a book that is at once novel, exciting, and educational. It represents a cross-fertilization of thoughts and ideas from a seemingly diverse group of specialists that focuses on specific pediatric disease-based and pediatric voice pathology-based topics.
