The team of experts at Children’s have additional training in pediatrics. The ENT doctors on staff at Children’s specialize in disorders of the ear, nose and throat, and may help treat your child with certain problems such as ear infections. Your child's primary care doctor will decide if you should visit an ENT.
If your child has lots of ear infections, ear tubes may help. Infections are caused when fluid gathers in the ear with nowhere to go. Even when the infection is gone, fluid may remain in his ear. Ear tubes allow the middle ear to drain and prevent fluid from building up—they will not change his hearing.
