When a child is born without a fully formed ear, it can affect more than just their hearing and appearance. As a comprehensive ear rehabilitation center, we help kids with outer ear reconstruction care you can see, and other important issues along the way — such as improving speech, custom-fitted glasses or hearing restoration through cochlear implants.
At our Nemours Children’s Ear, Hearing & Communication Center, our experience includes all kinds of ear conditions — what we call ear differences — including microtia, aural atresia and hearing loss. We’re the only center in Central Florida and one of just a few in the country dedicated to the care of these kids. And through advanced treatments and extensive support, our specialists help your child develop the confidence they need as they grow.
Our team of experts ensures your child receives the care they need in one place, at one time. It includes care from multiple specialties coordinated by the:
- Nemours Children’s Interdisciplinary Center for EAr Reconstruction (N.I.C.EA.R.)
- Nemours Children’s Hearing Enhancement, Augmentation and Restoration (N.H.E.A.R) Program
