Pediatric Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT and Otolaryngology)

The skilled ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital treat children with a wide range of conditions affecting the ear, nose, throat, head and neck. Our pediatric otolaryngologists offer the latest treatment options for children with concerns ranging from ear infections to sleep apnea and hearing loss to noisy breathing.

When a child’s ears, nose or throat do not work properly, simple tasks like eating, hearing and breathing become more difficult. At Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital, we offer ear, nose and throat (ENT) care that’s tailored to your child’s needs.

Our otolaryngologists (ENT doctors and specialists) diagnose and treat many conditions, such as recurrent external and internal ear infections and recurrent sore throat, at multiple locations throughout the Lehigh Valley. Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital also is home to the area’s first fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologists, who specialize in caring for children with complex concerns and providing family-centered care.

When children eat, hear and breathe better, they can tackle the world at their full potential. We can help them get there.

Expert pediatric ear, nose and throat surgery

If other treatment methods don’t relieve your child’s symptoms, surgery could offer a solution. Our pediatric otolaryngologists specialize in the surgical treatment of complex and chronic conditions, including:

  • Hearing loss: Our doctors are highly skilled in performing advanced surgeries to correct or improve certain causes of hearing loss. We use the latest implantable hearing aids for hearing restoration.
  • Sinusitis: Endoscopic (less-invasive) sinus surgery may improve chronic sinus symptoms due to pediatric upper airway disorders. These refined techniques also help reduce the pain your child will feel after surgery and the chance that their symptoms will come back.
  • Breathing problems: We use the latest techniques in tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and other surgeries to help your child breathe better. Our less invasive surgical techniques help your child recover faster and feel less pain.
  • Neck tumors: We treat benign (noncancerous) and cancerous causes of masses that form near a child’s head or neck.
