Pediatric Otolaryngology (ENT)

When your child has more than just a runny nose, the highly skilled, compassionate pediatric otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist, or ENT) at Rush University Children's Hospital can help.

From noisy breathing and sinus disease to hearing loss and congenital neck masses, you'll find care for the full range of common and complex ear, nose and throat issues in children of all ages. At Rush, we offer all of the latest treatments, from medications to minimally invasive surgery, and we personalize care plans to meet each child's needs.

Our pediatric ENT specialist also partners with other pediatric specialists at Rush University Children's Hospital — including gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, allergists, and sleep medicine experts — to address related issues such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), allergic rhinitis/asthma, and obstructive sleep apnea.
