Tube Feed Weaning

Many children and adults require feeding tubes because of swallowing problems that threaten their overall health and well being. With direct swallowing therapy, often times problems fully resolve or swallowing improves enough that a tube weaning program can be initiated.

With physician guidance, our Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing manages the process over weeks or months to successfully transition that child or adult from tube feeding to eating by mouth.
