Otolaryngologists, or ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors, treat children with common childhood problems such as ear infections, hearing loss, breathing problems and sinus issues. Our ENT doctors may also be involved if your child needs ear tubes or a tonsillectomy. We also see children with tumors and masses of the head and neck. Some conditions we commonly treat include:
Children often have problems of the ear, nose and throat that are rarely seen in adults. They respond differently to treatment and need an otolaryngology team with pediatric experience and training. Our pediatric ENT specialists are trained and experienced in treating children of all ages, from babies to young adults.
Each year, our team performs:
- More than 5,000 ear tube surgeries
- Thousands of tonsil and adenoid removal surgeries
- Nearly 9,000 total ENT surgical procedures
Our staff also knows how to talk to kids and families and how to help put them at ease at times of stress. We will work closely with you and your child to find the best treatment options for his specific needs.
