Discover Comprehensive Ear, Nose and Throat Care
As children develop, so do their senses. It’s how they’re introduced to the world, engage with their surroundings and experience life. That’s why it’s important to protect their ability to use these senses. Whether your child suffers from allergies, a deviated septum, ear infections, loss of smell or a swallowing disorder, the pediatric otolaryngologists at Arnold Palmer Hospital can help.
Pediatric otolaryngologists work with children to diagnose and manage diseases and conditions of the ears, nose, throat, head and neck. With our Pediatric Otolaryngology Program, your family has access to a full range of comprehensive services, including our audiology program; pediatric cochlear implant evaluation; and pediatric ear, nose and throat surgery.
