A Parent Testimonial
"Both of my sons suffered from chronic ear infections from a very early age. In addition to being in constant pain, it negatively impacted their sleeping as well as their hearing. Their pediatrician referred the boys to Lurie Children's as candidates for ear tubes. We took advantage of the Same Day Ear Tubes Program with my youngest son allowing for the evaluation and procedure to occur on the same day rather than over multiple visits. While my wife and I were apprehensive about putting our one-year-old sons under general anesthesia, the staff at Lurie Children's did an excellent job of walking us through all that was to occur and making sure we were comfortable with everything. Being able to get everything done with in one day was great. We were out of the hospital before nap time. After the procedures both boys slept much better, had consistently better moods and were pain free."
