Programs & Services
Ear, Nose & Throat (Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery)
When needed, ENT/Otolaryngology patients have access to other programs and services at Phoenix Children’s, including:
- The Aerodigestive Clinic: The only program in the Southwest to offer coordinated care from the ENT, Gastrointestinal and Pulmonary departments to children with complex problems in swallowing, breathing and feeding.
- Feeding and Swallowing Team: We work hand-in-hand with pulmonology and speech and language specialists to help resolve your child's feeding and swallowing problems.
- Center for Cleft and Craniofacial Care: Along with our Plastic Surgery, Orthopedics and Neurology departments, we provide reconstructive or corrective surgery to improve complex structural abnormalities of the head and face to improve breathing.
- Interventional Radiology: We work closely with interventional radiologists to treat complex diseases like vascular and lymphatic malformations.
Ear tube placement and tonsil removal are two of the most common procedures for our team. We specialize in the care of children with chronic and recurrent ear infections, often treated with ear tubes. This common procedure takes about five minutes to complete, and the child is usually able to go home the same day.
Did you know?
We perform more than 500 tonsil and adenoid removals every year due to recurrent tonsillitis, obstructive sleep disordered breathing and sleep apnea in children. The type of surgery performed depends on the individual needs of each child.
How to prepare your child
If your child needs an ENT consultation, be honest with them about the steps ahead. Children are more at ease when they understand why they are coming to the hospital. We also do everything possible to ensure that your child is comfortable and knowledgeable about their treatment plan.
