Surgical Program Exclusively for Kids

Children requiring surgery are cared for by specialists in the region's only surgical program exclusively for children, where pediatric anesthesiologists and nurses are specifically trained to make surgery as safe and comfortable as possible for children. 

Our otolaryngologists work closely with general pediatricians to formulate long-term treatment plans for children with chronic illness and to provide care for children needing urgent ENT care. When needed, they consult with CHKD pediatric specialists in such areas as allergy, pulmonology, dentistry, infectious diseases and hematology/oncology

Our patients also benefit from CHKD’s related ancillary services, such as audiology, speech-language pathology, and diagnostic testing, which cater to the special needs of children.

All of our specialists have completed residency training in otolaryngology and are certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and/or the American Board of Plastic and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery. Several of our specialists have completed fellowship (post-residency) training in pediatric otolaryngology. Our department is dedicated to the care of children with ENT problems.
