The Division of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery provides medical and surgical treatment for children with disorders of the ears, nose and throat (ENT), as well as head and neck tumors. Our physicians treat more children for ENT conditions than any other hospital in Illinois. In fact, our specialists perform approximately 40% of the nearly 20,000 surgeries that take place at Lurie Children’s each year.
Our patient care helps save and transform children’s lives. One physician from our division has implanted more than 1,000 cochlear implants in children to restore hearing. Another helped develop a new technique for reconstructing the windpipe (trachea) in newborns, which improves surgical results.
