Our team of pediatric ENTs treats children with common illnesses such as tonsillitis, sinusitis and ear infections (otitis media) using the latest guidelines for medical treatment and the most advanced techniques for surgical treatment.
We also assess and treat children with more unusual disorders, including breathing problems involving the upper airways, chronic ear disease and acquired or congenital masses of the head and neck, sometimes with procedures and techniques developed here at Johns Hopkins. Some children with ear, nose and throat diseases need special care because of complicating medical conditions, such as asthma, heart disease, or developmental disorders. We care for children with these multiple conditions using all the resources of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
