Dr. Hershko is a certified member of Richard Baxter's Tongue Tie Academy, and is extensively trained on the evaluation and treatment of lip and tongue ties. A frenectomy procedure consists of releasing the tissue underneath the tongue or upper lip to allow for improved range of motion. Restrictions of the lip and/or tongue can cause difficulty with breastfeeding, speech, swallowing, and overall health and development. Treating a tongue or lip tie by "releasing" the tip with a laser may allow a child to grow, develop and thrive. In collaboration with your child's pediatrician, nurse practitioner, lactation consultant, and/or myofunctional or speech therapists, Dr. Hershko is able to provide laser treatment to release a tongue or lip tie. The safety and health of your child is of utmost priority. Dr. Hershko welcomes referrals from your child's providers to confirm a diagnosis and formulate a proper treatment plan.
