The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology provides care to children from birth to 18 years of age with all types of ear, nose and throat conditions. Our group is comprised of full-time pediatric otolaryngologists, general otolaryngologists, and neuro-otologists.

We receive referrals from pediatricians and primary care providers throughout the region and have expertise in:

  • breathing disorders
  • obstructive sleep apnea
  • laryngeal and tracheal abnormalities
  • hoarseness
  • hearing loss
  • ear infections
  • speech and language disorders
  • swallowing disorders
  • neck masses and lesions
  • tumors and malignancies of the head and neck
  • vascular anomalies
  • birth defects affecting the face, head, and neck
  • problems associated with clefting of the lip and palate
  • chronic ear infections
  • cholesteatoma
  • cochlear implantation
  • chronic sinus infections

Many of the services that we provide are through collaborations with other subspecialists at Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. We work closely with our colleagues in pulmonary medicine to provide care for children who require tracheostomies and home ventilators. We also provide care through the multidisciplinary Cleft and Craniofacial Team for children born with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial anomalies.

The pediatric otolaryngology team also participates in the Vascular Anomalies Clinic to provide children with medical and surgical options for these challenging lesions. Our group also is a vital part of one of the most busy programs in the country in caring for children with hearing loss. We provide medical and surgical services for children with hearing loss, offering options of surgical reconstruction, hearing amplification, Baha, and cochlear implantation.
