Pediatric Ear, Nose, and Throat (Otolaryngology)
Pediatric Otolaryngology is dedicated to ensuring the highest quality of care to children with ear, nose and throat disorders. Our care team is comprised of board-certified pediatric otolaryngologists, nurses, audiologists, and speech / swallow pathologists, all specially trained to care for the developmental and special needs of children.
We treat children from birth to 21 years of age with a wide range of ear, nose and throat conditions. Working with the child and family, our physicians collaborate with other pediatric specialists such as pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, plastic surgeons, general surgeons, oncologists and oral surgeons to develop an individualized care plan to offer the most effective treatment options.
A coordinator to help you navigate
Our ENT Nurse Coordinator is available to support coordination of all care needs from initial contact with first appointment and throughout the continuum of care. As the main point of contact, the nurse coordinator is the liaison between patient and physician, and coordinates multiple care needs from answering questions and concerns to offer the most effective treatment options.
Our ear, nose, and throat program encompasses the care of children with a full array of disorders, including:
