Rutgers Center for Pediatric Otolaryngology

The subspecialty of Pediatric Otolaryngology focuses on disorders of the ear, nose, and throat of newborns, infants, and childern. The department faculty have acquired the skills necessary to provide specialized and state of the art care to the pediatric population. The problems facing the pediatric population are unique due to the child's head development and the locaiton of structures that change as the child grows. Our pediatric otolaryngologits are not only knowledgeable about the ear, nose, and throat issues of children but they also undesrstand the importance of physical and mental development and the needs of families in planning care.
