Pediatric Otolaryngology

Rutgers Health Pediatric Otolaryngology - Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) focuses on disorders of the ear, nose, and throat in newborns, infants, and children. These disorders, in the pediatric population, are unique due to a child's head development and the location of structures that change as children grow. Our pediatric otolaryngologists have expertise in ear, nose, and throat issues in children, and they possess a unique understanding of how procedures can affect physical and mental development of our pediatric patients and their families.

Our program cares for newborns, infants, and children that have

  • Airway and breathing disorders
  • Ankyloglossia (tongue-tie)
  • Cleft lip
  • Cleft palate
  • Congenital malformations
  • Craniofacial anomalies
  • Ear disease (infections and cholesteatoma – destructive and expanding growths in the middle ear and/or mastoid bone)
  • Foreign bodies that affect breathing
  • Hearing loss
  • Pediatric head and neck tumors
  • Pediatric nose and sinus problems
  • Speech and language disorders
  • Tonsil and adenoid disease
  • Velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI)

Physicians who serve the Rutgers Health Pediatric Otolaryngology - ENT program are on the faculty of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and teach about all aspects of otolaryngology and pediatric care, and each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

If your child needs treatment for ear, nose, and/or throat disorders, make an appointment with the Rutgers Health Pediatric Otolaryngology - ENT practice.
