Drooling Management

Our rehabilitation experts have a unique program to address excessive drooling, often a cause of aspiration pneumonia, and social embarrassment for children. Our treatment relies on ultrasound to guide botulinum toxin injections of the salivary glands. This procedure can be done with local or general anesthesia. We have found that it reduces hospital admissions from pneumonia, boosts children's confidence in social situations, and improves the quality of life for families.
