all about ears

The human ear contains many small, moving parts that together help us interpret our surroundings by translating sound waves into something we can all understand. In children, ears are more susceptible to infections and other problems that can result in hearing loss. At ENT Care for Kids, we have brought happy endings to recurrent ear infections and other ear problems for thousands of children. And, we’ve removed more foreign objects from little ears than you can imagine, from peas to pebbles to Silly Putty.

If hearing loss is a concern, our team of highly trained and experienced audiologists uses state-of-the-art sound assessment equipment to look for any problems. And they make those assessments seem more like a game than a scary test. Many hearing loss conditions can be treated, and the sooner we know about them, the better.

Ears are important. They provide us with the gift of laughter and alert us to danger; and help us keep our balance too. If you’re concerned with something about your child’s ears, give us a call. We’re very good listeners.

Conditions commonly treated by the practice include:
  • Ear infections (otitis media)
  • Middle ear fluid (otitis media with effusion)
  • Hearing loss, including failed school hearing screening
  • Swimmer’s ear (otitis externa)
  • Perforated ear drum
  • Ear canal foreign objects
Sometimes, procedures need to be performed on the ears to make them better.
Ear procedures commonly performed at ENT Care for Kids include:
  • Ear tube placement
  • Ear drum repair (tympanoplasty)
  • Removal of ear wax and foreign objects (generally done in the office)
