Most children will have their share of sore throats and earaches over the years. When things get more serious, they may require treatment from the Otolaryngology & Audiology program of the Ronald McDonald® Children’s Hospital of Loyola. From tonsillitis to sinusitis, we care for children with a variety of problems involving the ear, nose and throat, including:
- Cleft lip and palate
- Complex airway disorders
- Congenital head and neck masses
- Excessive drooling
- Head and Neck tumors
- Hearing loss
- Nasal Obstructions
- Recurrent ear infections
- Sinus Infections and treatment
- Sleep apnea (temporary cessation of breathing)
- Swallowing disorders
- Voice disorders
Our physicians can perform a broad range of treatments and surgical procedures, including tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, removal of aspirated foreign bodies (peanuts, etc.), ear drainage tubes, nasal surgery, correction of airway obstructions and facial plastic surgery.
Loyola’s Cleft Lip & Palate program corrects cleft lip and palate in patients, but also ear, nose and throat problems often associated with this condition.
