Ear, Nose & Throat - Pediatric

Pediatric ENT team

Welcome to Pediatric Otolaryngology at Kentucky Children’s Hospital. We are dedicated to providing high-quality, family-centered care for all of your child’s ear, nose and throat needs. We believe that effectively treating pediatric patients requires meticulous attention, not only to the medical and surgical aspects of the care, but also to the emotional needs of children and their families.

Our surgeons have completed ENT residency and an extra year in a dedicated pediatric ENT fellowship focusing on complex ear, nose and throat disorders in infants, children and adolescents. Our surgeons perform more than 2,000 surgeries every year, from ear tubes and tonsillectomies to complex airway reconstruction and cochlear implantation. We work with you to create a specialized healthcare plan based on what is best for your child’s health.

We see patients at in Lexington and in Morehead. Our surgeries are performed in Lexington at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital, primarily at the Center for Advanced Surgery. Kentucky Children’s Hospital’s features a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for care of the infants with complex health issues that was recently relocated to a brand-new state-of-the-art facility. There is also a recently renovated pediatric inpatient floor and pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) for the care of critical problems in young children and adolescents.
