Pediatric Otolaryngology

The Center for Pediatric Otolaryngology specializes in the evaluation and treatment of a variety of ear, nose and throat disorders in children. These include infectious diseases (tonsillitis, otitis, rhinosinusitis), congenital and acquired benign and malignant diseases and disorders of the head and neck, ear disorders and hearing impairment, nasal and sinus abnormalities, sleep disorders and a variety of pediatric airway, voice and swallowing disorders.

The Center also cares for children with a wide variety of sinus conditions. These include inflammatory lesions, congenital masses, and both benign and malignant neoplasms. Children with sinusitis can develop significant complications such as sub-periosteal abscesses and orbital abscesses. The latest technologies, including image-guided tracking systems and balloon sinuplasty technology, are available to provide the safest and least invasive surgeries for children with acute or chronic sinusitis.

In collaboration with a multidisciplinary team, the Center for Pediatric Otolaryngology provides collaborative care to children with facial skeletal diseases including cleft lip and cleft palate repair.
