Pediatric otolaryngology in the Rocky Mountain region

Ear infections, sinus infections and tonsillitis—kids are susceptible to conditions of the ear, nose and throat (ENT). While some conditions can be treated at home or under your pediatrician’s supervision, some conditions are more severe, and your child may be referred to a pediatric ear, nose and throat doctor, also called a pediatric otolaryngologist.
