Introduction Katie was born with Treacher Collins Syndrome, and has been trached since a newborn. The 2004 & 2011 surgeries were intended to help open her airway, align her teeth, and allow her to eat more easily. However, due to what we consider to have been woefully inadequate preanalysis and planning, those surgeries were complete failures and left KT with severe facial pain. Now, we are trying to find a solution to eliminate pain primarily, and to create a jaw joint that will allow her to chew food, which has become more and more difficult as she's entered adulthood.
