At Children’s Hospital Colorado, our otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) experts provide comprehensive care for kids in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond. Each year we see more than 18,000 patients for conditions like hearing loss and sleep disorders.
Our team is one of the largest fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologist teams in the western United States. Specialists are also faculty members in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
To provide your child with the most comprehensive care, the department collaborates with other services at Children’s Colorado, such as audiology, speech pathology and learning services, pulmonary medicine, allergy, immunology pediatric medicine and surgery.
In addition to providing regular pediatric ENT clinics, our faculty and staff conduct interdisciplinary clinics for sinusitis, velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI), microtia, voice disorders, balance disorders, hearing loss, resonance disorders and vestibular disorders and 22-q.
Our otolaryngologists are also routinely involved in the hospital’s Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic, Vascular Anomalies Center, Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) Clinic and the region’s only pediatric Sleep Lab. We are also an integral part of the multidisciplinary Aerodigestive Program that treats complex patients with upper airway problems and associated gastrointestinal and lower airway diseases. In addition, we regularly work with the Infectious Disease Program, the Allergy and Immunology Center, the Pediatric Neurology Program and the SIE Center.
Our specialists are also involved in plastic surgery and trauma surgery for the face, including lacerations and fractures caused by trauma, congenital or acquired cosmetic conditions and function defects.
