The management of Pierre-Robin Sequence, or small jaw with respiratory obstruction, requires a collaborative approach to patient care that includes pediatricians, otolaryngologists, and plastic surgeons. The patient's care plan is developed after extensive evaluation of the airway and other systems. Surgical treatment, such as jaw distraction, is sometimes part of the care plan.
