Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose & Throat/ENT)

Kids’ ENT Experts


Nemours' pediatric ENT specialists help kids

Our board-certified otolaryngologists are doctors and surgeons who diagnose and treat ear, nose and throat (ENT) conditions in kids of all ages, from newborns to teens. Nemours has one of the largest pediatric ENT programs in the country, with nearly 65,000 outpatient visits each year. We combine our expertise in airway, balance and vestibular disorders with the expertise of specialists in audiology and hearing, plastic surgery and more to meet all of your child’s needs — when and where you need us.

Conditions We Treat

Conditions We Treat


Our experienced, highly skilled ENT specialists provide medical and surgical care for all kinds of conditions, from the simplest to most complex. We understand how ENT conditions can affect kids’ hearing, learning, speech, sleep and development.

We see a full spectrum of conditions — far too many to list here. The conditions we treat vary depending on the location and providers selected. Don’t see a condition listed? Call us.

We also work together to address ENT-related concerns associated with other conditions, such as cerebral palsy, cleft lip and palate, Down syndrome and skeletal dysplasia.

Why Choose Us

Why Choose Us


Many of our board-certified ENT specialists are named “Best Doctors in America®,” year after year. We work together with our large team of experts that may include physician assistants (PAs), nurse practitioner (NPs), anesthesiologists, audiologists, speech and language pathologists, feeding and swallowing therapists, radiologists, psychologists, and deaf educators.

If your child needs surgery or medical imaging (radiology), we work together to combine procedures to reduce the number of times a child may need to go under anesthesia. And because our team members are all under one roof, we can often schedule multiple appointments in one day. Our seasoned teams also use state-of-the-art, child-friendly equipment. Whenever possible, we use the latest, least invasive surgical techniques too. That often means less pain and bleeding — and getting kids back to being kids faster.
