Outstanding outcomes in pediatric ENT and facial plastic surgery care

Choosing where to bring your child for care is a major decision. We understand you want all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.

That’s why we share our outcomes with you. In medicine, “outcomes” measure the end results of a treatment. By comparing our outcomes with those of other hospitals, locally and nationally, you can see how we rank in terms of keeping patients safe and healthy.

Finding new ways to improve comfort and care

We focus on research and innovations that make a difference at the bedside. From improving day-to-day quality of life for children and teens, to developing new pain management approaches and adopting cutting-edge technologies, our research is completely kid and family-focused.

Children’s Minnesota is engaged in many types of research, including investigator-initiated studies, as well as externally sponsored multi-center trials, observational studies and registries.

Research studies are ongoing in all areas of the hospital and clinics. In the ENT and facial plastic surgery program, research spans the breadth of pediatric otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery, as well as cleft and craniofacial care. We are on a mission to investigate all avenues to improve the treatment here and for young patients throughout the world.
