Pediatric Otolaryngology

Clinical Care

Located in the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, our pediatric unit is a microcosm of the Department of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery – we treat the same broad spectrum of ear, nose, throat, head and neck conditions, just in younger patients.

Our fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologists treat patients with both common and complex conditions, such as:

  • Airway abnormalities
  • Allergies
  • Ear drum perforations
  • Facial paralysis
  • Hearing loss
  • Head and neck cancer
  • Neck masses
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Recurrent nosebleeds
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Swallowing disorders
  • Tongue tie
  • Vascular malformations

We're proud to collaborate with health care providers across a multitude of specialties — including pediatrics, neurosurgery, gastroenterology and pulmonology — to provide care for our patients and their families. This includes several multidisciplinary clinics such as cleft/craniofacial, aerodigestive and pediatric voice.

Education

For those pursuing careers in pediatric otolaryngology, we provide support in preparing and applying for fellowship programs. Continuing with prior trends, recent ENT residents with a desire to complete a pediatric otolaryngology fellowship have matched to their top choice, and those choosing a general practice feel confident in caring for a wide range of issues in pediatric patients.
