Toby Goforth, a teenage boy with Prader–Willi syndrome, received a rare jaw reconstruction surgery to improve his sleep, as indicated on a KCTV5 news report.

“We usually don’t do it on growing children, however, there are some babies who are born with obstructive jaws and in some cases we move the jaw forward to improve their breathing,” Lypka said.

It was a three-year process, but now Toby no longer needs a breathing machine. After dealing with this condition for 12 years, he now sleeps freely, has regained his energy and feels well.
