Our pediatric otolaryngologists provide comprehensive care for children of all ages – from newborns to teens – with conditions of the ears, nose, throat (ENT) and related areas of the head and neck. No case is too big or too small, whether it’s swollen tonsils, chronic ear infections or a complex neck mass. When surgery is required, our surgeons bring the latest procedures that help your child get back to being a kid.
Our physicians are all fellowship trained in pediatrics, bringing a specialized expertise to children’s care not found at adult practices. Our commitment to research and ongoing education means we are always at the forefront of pediatric ENT care.
We employ the latest diagnostic technologies to conduct hearing, airway and voice evaluations. We also specialize in common and complex ENT procedures, including:
Issues of the ear, nose and throat often require expertise in many different areas.
