Learn about Dr. Balakrishnan
Work closely with patients and families and the Mayo Clinic multidisciplinary aerodigestive and vascular anomalies teams to help children achieve the best possible airway and aerodigestive outcomes with the most pleasant and efficient patient and family experience possible. I feel strongly about collaborating with patients and families to make sure patients achieve the best possible outcomes, and I treat children the way I would want my own children to be treated.
