The Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology (otherwise known as Ear, Nose, and Throat, or ENT) provides care for patients with problems involving the ears, sinuses, oral cavity, airway, nose, throat, and neck including sinus conditions, neck masses, allergy, and snoring. The department also specializes in swallowing disorders, voice problems, dizziness and balance disorders, hearing loss, and breathing problems.
Our pediatric otolaryngologists work closely with pediatric pulmonologists and gastroenterologists to provide a multidisciplinary team approach to evaluating and treating each patient. They also work closely with audiologists (hearing experts) and speech/swallow pathologists.
Conditions treated include:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea
- Aerodigestive Disorders
- Congenital Neck Masses
- Chronic Ear Issues
- Sinus Disease
- Tongue-tie (ankyloglossia)
