As Otolaryngologists, we provide comprehensive ears, nose and throat (ENT) care to children who are experiencing a wide range of medical conditions.

Ear Infections
One of the most common services provided by Otolaryngologists for children is the treatment of ear infections. Ear infections are a common childhood ailment and can cause pain, fever, and hearing loss. Otolaryngologists can diagnose and treat ear infections, as well as provide preventative care to reduce the risk of future infections.

Tonsils and Adenoid Problems
Another common service provided by Otolaryngologists for children is the evaluation and treatment of tonsil infections or enlargement of the tonsils/adenoids. These conditions can cause sore throats, trouble swallowing, snoring, and even sleep apnea. Otolaryngologists can perform surgical procedures to remove tonsils and adenoids to alleviate symptoms.

Hearing Problems
Otolaryngologists can also diagnose and treat hearing loss in children. We can perform hearing tests to assess hearing function and provide treatment options such as treating middle ear problems, providing hearing aids or cochlear implants for children with severe hearing loss. Our physicians at Southwest Ohio ENT staff the cochlear implant center at Children’s Medical Center.

Allergy and Sinus Disease
Otolaryngologists can diagnose and treat all forms of sinus and allergy problems in children. Most sinus and allergy problems in children can be treated with medications such as antihistamines and nasal sprays. But, when medications are not working any longer to control sinusitis then allergy testing and immunotherapy (allergy shots) may be needed. Rarely, children may need sinus surgery for recurrent infections.

Feeding Problems
Otolaryngologists are experts in feeding and swallowing issues in children. When newborns have difficulty breastfeeding, this is often due to poor tongue movement caused by tongue or lip tie. Otolaryngologists can diagnose tongue/lip tie and often treat it in the office on the same day.

Overall, Otolaryngologists provide critical care for children with a wide range of conditions related to the ear, nose, throat, and head and neck area. If your child is experiencing any of these conditions, it is important to seek the advice of an Otolaryngologist to receive the proper diagnosis and treatment.
