Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat)
The pediatric otolaryngology team at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital includes otolaryngologists, nurses, audiologists, speech and swallowing pathologists, and other healthcare professionals who provide a multidisciplinary approach to the care of children with ear, nose, and throat problems. These disorders range from the most common problems affecting children, such as ear, tonsil, and sinus infections; snoring; and obstructive sleep apnea, to more complex problems, ranging from congenital hearing loss and neck masses to complicated airway problems. Professionals here understand the physical and emotional needs of children and encourage the active participation of parents in all aspects of patient care.
Our physicians use advanced diagnostic equipment and techniques to diagnose ear, nose, and throat problems quickly and accurately.
When surgery is required, our physicians have access to tools not available in most hospitals, such as CT-guided surgery equipment, which improve outcomes for our young patients.
