Children have many problems with their ears, nose, and throat. In fact, 75 percent of children will experience an ear infection by age three. Often, these problems can be cared for by your child's physician.
Depending on your child's situation, your child's physician may refer him or her to a CHOC otolaryngologist for specialty care. Otolaryngology is the medical specialty that focuses on disorders of the ear, nose, and throat. They are also known as “ENT” physicians.
CHOC ENT specialists can help treat your child with certain problems such as ear infections, hearing loss, breathing problems, or sinus problems. ENT physicians may also be involved if your child needs ear tubes or tonsil surgery.
