Pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) physicians (otolaryngologists), audiologists and speech-language pathologists work as a team to provide care for a broad range of conditions affecting the head and neck. Otolaryngologists (pronounced “ah-toe-lair-in-goll-oh-gists”) specifically provide surgical and nonsurgical treatment. Audiologists specialize in caring for hearing and balance disorders.

The team at Norton Children’s ENT & Audiology, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, provides surgical and nonsurgical care for conditions including allergies, frequent ear infections, hearing loss, sinusitis, smell disorders, speech disorders, swallowing disorders and conditions affecting the voice.

“In treating the pediatric population, the care we provide touches not only the patient but their family and caregivers. Often, pediatric ENT and audiology patients require not just an otolaryngologist or audiologist to treat their condition but a team of specialists, which is why we use a multidisciplinary approach that gives patients access to care that is focused on comprehensive treatment”.
