The subspecialty of Pediatric Otolaryngology focuses on disorders of the ear, nose, and throat of newborns, infants, and children. The medical staff have acquired the skills necessary to provide specialized and state-of-the-art care to the pediatric population. The problems facing children are unique, due to head development and the location of structures that change as the child grows. Our pediatric otolaryngologists are not only knowledgeable about the ear, nose, and throat issues of children but they also understand the importance of physical and mental development and the needs of families in planning care.

- Airway and Breathing Disorders

- Speech and Language Disorders
