Ear, nose and throat care for children

The Pediatric Otolaryngology care team treats ear, nose and throat problems in infants through teens. Some of the health problems we test for and treat include:

  • Congenital ear anomalies (abnormal ears present at birth)
  • Ear Infections
  • Hearing loss
  • Hoarseness
  • Laryngeal papillomatosis (a rare disease where warts grow in the respiratory tract, caused by the human papillomavirus [HPV])
  • Laryngomalacia (collapse of the voice box) and other structural disorders of the larynx (voice box)
  • Nasal obstruction/mouth-breathing
  • Neck mass
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (when the airway is blocked during sleep)
  • Recurrent tonsillitis (repeated tonsil infections)
  • Salivary gland disorders
  • Sinusitis (inflamed sinuses)
  • Snoring
  • Stridor (high-pitched sound made while breathing)
  • Subglottic stenosis (airway narrowing below the vocal cords)

This is not a full list of the health problems we treat. If your child has another ENT concern, please call us to see how we may help.

“It is an honor for me to partner with families to care for children with ear, nose, and throat problems. I enjoy working with children with a wide range of otolaryngology needs from ear surgery and cochlear implants for profound hearing loss, to sinus surgery, and airway reconstruction. I am passionate about providing the best possible care for these children.”
