Specialists in pediatric otolaryngology, commonly called ENT, care for children with problems of the ear, nose, throat and neck. Young children cannot always tell you what is bothering them. Our otolarygologists are experienced in the latest ways to examine and treat children using equipment specially designed for smaller ears, noses, and throats. Our committment to family-centered care ensures better diagnosis and less stress on your child and family.
Here is a listing of some conditions we treat:
- Ear infections, including ear tubes
- Hearing loss and deafness
- Tonsil and adenoid disorders
- Airway, swallowing and voice disorders
- Congenital malformations (such as microtia/atresia and cleft palate)
- Vascular malformations
- Neck masses
- Nose and sinus conditions
