Why request a second opinion from the ear, nose and throat specialists at Children’s Colorado
We rely on the senses of hearing, taste and smell for our entire lives. Medical conditions that affect these senses as a child can affect a person throughout their life if not treated correctly.
The right surgery can do wonders to treat ear, nose and throat conditions , and at the same time, the wrong surgery can cause a lingering effect that a person may have to deal with for the rest of their lives. Getting a second opinion from an experienced, dedicated team is vital to ensuring long-term health and happiness. You’ll get that expert second opinion from Children’s Colorado.
