Pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT), or pediatric otolaryngology, is a medical sub-specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of ailments of the ears, nose and throat in infants, children, and adolescents.
Pediatric audiology services provide routine hearing assessment examinations for infants and children, including hearing screenings and assessment for newborn infants. Additionally, SIU HealthCare specialists provide diagnostic and rehabilitative services for children with a wide range of hearing disorders.
Pediatric hearing and speech therapists offer diagnostic, treatment, and group therapy services for children with hearing and hearing-related speech disorders. Because these problems can affect a child’s development, early diagnosis and early intervention is important.
Pediatric primary care focuses on the overall health and well-being of your child from infancy through adolescence. It includes regular well-visits and examinations, all vaccinations, and diagnosis and treatment of most childhood ailments. SIU Medicine physicians and other providers welcome new patients.
