Otolaryngology (ENT)

Pediatric otolaryngology, commonly known as pediatric ENT (Ear-Nose-Throat), is a sub-specialty of otolaryngology, the oldest medical specialty in the United States. Pediatric otolaryngologists or pediatric ENT specialists are trained and qualified to manage and treat children with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose and throat (ENT), such as the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity and upper pharynx (mouth and throat) and related structures of the head and neck. Pediatric ENT specialists also manage and treat special problems such as birth defects in the head and neck and developmental delays.

The Division of pediatric otolaryngology at Cohen Children’s Medical Center offers comprehensive medical and surgical treatment for children with conditions related to the ear, nose, throat, or head and neck.

Patients are seen at our state-of-the art clinical suites at the Hearing and Speech Center on the campus of Long Island Jewish Medical Center. The pediatric ENT facility includes specialists from otolaryngology, audiology, speech and language pathology.

Our pediatric ontolaryngologists diagnose and treat a wide range of disorders, including routine ear, tonsil and sinus infections, snoring, and obstructive sleep apnea. We also specialize in more complex problems, ranging from congenital hearing loss to complex neck masses, voice and airway problems. Our pediatric otolaryngology staff understands the physical and emotional needs of children and encourages the active participation of parents in all aspects of a child’s care. A compassionate family-friendly approach is conducted in close cooperation with the patient's referring physician.
