Diagnoses and treatment for disorders of the ears, nose, throat in children
The specialists in the Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at Saint Louis University diagnose and treat disorders of the ears, nose, throat and related parts of the head and neck in children. This includes a variety of conditions including ear and throat infections, sinus disease, airway and head and neck disorders and sleep problems.
The division participates in a variety of multidisciplinary teams so that children benefit from the best treatment for ear, nose and throat disorders. The team of physicians specializes in hearing loss and childhood communication disorders including cochlear implants. In addition, the division includes a strong focus on childhood sleep problems and is part of a cleft lip and palate team. Because the focus is entirely on children we work closely with the experts in many fields so that children receive the best care. Our specialists are based at Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center.
