Specialty clinics and services

We provide care for certain conditions through specialty clinics. Other providers assist our ENT doctors.

Sophisticated imaging and treatments allow us to help children with abnormal growths that can develop with veins, arteries, capillaries and vessels of the lymph system. Learn more.

Our audiologists use special tests, games and toys to check young children’s hearing. We do an evaluation and fitting for hearing aids, earmold impressions and hearing aid repairs in-house. Learn more.

Our voice experts are known throughout the world for their work in the research, diagnosis and treatment of pediatric voice disorders. Our swallowing professionals use special techniques to help children of all ages who have trouble swallowing. Learn more.

Children who have frequent ear infections may need ear tubes as part of their treatment. Our same-day program allows children to see a pediatric ENT doctor and receive their ear tubes in a single visit. Children must meet certain criteria to qualify. Learn more.
