Second Opinions for Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Care

As one of the largest pediatric ear, nose and throat teams in the U.S., we offer care in six convenient locations for children in Colorado and beyond.

Since children’s immune systems are still maturing, they’re more susceptible to ear, nose and throat infections than adults. So, it comes as no surprise that our Pediatric Otolaryngology (ENT) Department sees more than 18,000 children every year. Seeing this volume of patients over the years, every year, has provided us with the most experience and expertise in the region.

When it comes to conditions affecting the ear, nose and throat, we’ve seen it all. This means we know when a case is severe and needs surgical treatment, or when we can use the right treatments to avoid surgery. For second opinions on ear, nose and throat conditions, come to Children’s Hospital Colorado to ensure that you are choosing the best treatment option for your child.

It’s easy to start the process — just give us a call to schedule an initial informational phone call with our team. Once we discuss your child’s health history, we’ll decide which specialists will be best for your child to see for an in-person second opinion appointment.
