Your child’s ears, nose and throat are in good hands
The ear, nose and throat (ENT) and facial plastic surgery program at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota offers a full range of services focused on the medical and surgical treatment of conditions that affect the head and neck.
Our experienced team works with families to resolve ENT issues at any time — during pregnancy, immediately after birth and throughout childhood. We do everything from helping kids with tonsillitis feel better to reshaping a child’s face after it has been shattered in an auto accident. Whether a child is born with a hearing issue or a malformed head, a baby has serious feeding complications or a toddler has a facial birth mark, we have the tools, the know-how and the technology to make it better.
For families facing ENT conditions that are more complex, we work closely with other Children’s specialists to provide your child with expert care from other clinics, including the cleft and craniofacial clinic, the head and neck cancers program, and our thyroid interdisciplinary team which includes endocrinologists, head and neck surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, and other specialists who collaborate on diagnosis, management, and up-to-date standards of care for children and young adults with thyroid lesions.
