Absolutely not. Breathing Normalization specialists are not medical doctors; we are educators, and cannot make a decision about surgery. We teach children and their parents how to improve their breathing by eliminating hyperventilation (especially mouth breathing). Usually, this improves a child’s health and removes all breathing difficulties, and as a result, the need for surgery is eliminated. However, this must be confirmed by a doctor. The final decision regarding surgery should be made by parents in consultation with their child’s physician.
