Tracheal Diseases

Diseases of the trachea (or windpipe) affect breathing and are often difficult to treat because of the complexity of the respiratory system. At Memorial Sloan Kettering, our Complex Airway Program provides comprehensive care for people with cancerous and noncancerous diseases of the trachea and bronchi – from diagnosis to treatment to surveillance following therapy.
