Our pediatric otolaryngologists provide comprehensive care for children of all ages – from newborns to teens – with conditions of the ears, nose, throat (ENT) and related areas of the head and neck. No case is too big or too small, whether it’s swollen tonsils, chronic ear infections or a complex neck mass. When surgery is required, our surgeons bring the latest procedures that help your child get back to being a kid.

Our physicians are all fellowship trained in pediatrics, bringing a specialized expertise to children’s care not found at adult practices. Our commitment to research and ongoing education means we are always at the forefront of pediatric ENT care.

To contact CHOC Children’s Otolaryngology, please call (714) 633-4020.

Innovative Programs

Issues of the ear, nose and throat often require expertise in many different areas. That’s why we collaborate closely with other CHOC Children’s specialists to offer several multidisciplinary programs. We’ll coordinate with each of these areas for you, while always working closely with your family to carry out a plan that is sensitive to your child’s needs.

Aerodigestive Program
This unique program brings together pediatric specialists in otolaryngology, gastroenterology, pulmonology and speech/swallow therapy to care for children with disorders involving the airway and digestive system. We work to diagnose and treat the root cause of a condition, rather than treating a series of symptoms.

Vascular Anomalies Program
Our Vascular Anomalies Program comprises a team of specialists who work together to assess and treat vascular lesions, including infantile hemangiomas and lymphatic malformations. In addition to otolaryngologists, the program is composed of CHOC specialists in hematology, plastic surgery and cardiology.

Cleft & Craniofacial Program
From cleft lip and cleft palate repair to complete facial reconstruction, we use the very latest and advanced techniques to help a child look, eat and speak just like other children. The complexity of craniofacial disorders often requires a team approach involving specialists in otolaryngology, plastic surgeryneurology, genetics and orthopaedics.
