Issues of the ear, nose and throat often require expertise in many different areas. That’s why we collaborate closely with other CHOC 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.
Cochlear Implant Program
We specialize in offering cochlear implants, a revolutionary treatment for infants, children and teens who have profound hearing loss. The CHOC Cochlear Implant Program is designed to give your child the support they need to hear and communicate effectively.
This unique clinic 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 Center
Our Vascular Anomalies Center 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 clinic is composed of CHOC specialists in hematology, plastic surgery and cardiology.
Cleft and 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 plastic surgery, otolaryngology, neurology, genetics and orthopaedics.
