Overview

Family-centered hearing care

Hearing can help us to connect to the world around us. It can help us to communicate, keep us safe and bring us joy.

Pediatric audiology at UW Health focuses on evaluation and treatment of children’s hearing. Our team of audiologists evaluates hearing in kids from birth through age 17. For those diagnosed with hearing loss, we offer a variety of treatment plans.

Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic

Sometimes, hearing disorders are linked to craniofacial anomalies. These are defects in a child’s head and facial bones that are usually present at birth. Doctors in our Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic specialize in treating these conditions.
