Pediatric ENT Q&A

Why does your child need a pediatric ENT?

Children are a specialty all on their own. Kids aren’t simply tiny adults; their bodies constantly change, making diagnosis and treatment a challenge. They can’t always voice what’s bothering them, requiring a pediatric doctor to diagnose and treat their symptoms properly.


If your child is suffering from any issue pertaining to their ears, nose, or throat, a pediatric ENT specialist is needed. Dr. Bhayani offers specialized care to pediatric patients and has the experience and knowledge to get to the bottom of the problem.


Kids are especially susceptible to certain conditions affecting their ears, nose, and throat. Nasal obstructions, tonsillitis, and chronic ear infections are just a few of the issues your child may run into.

What type of problems does a pediatric ENT diagnose?

Dr. Bhayani offers state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to find out what’s causing the issue with your child. There are a number of ENT related problems kids experience, some of which include:


  • Ear infections
  • Hearing loss
  • Ruptured eardrum
  • Nasal obstruction
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Tonsillitis
  • Swallowing problems
  • Vocal cord dysfunction


Pediatric ENT physicians like Dr. Bhayani also deal with head, neck, and airway disorders in kids. These problems include foreign bodies in the throat, noisy breathing, and tumors or masses in the head or neck.

What treatments does pediatric ENT include?

Both conservative and surgical treatments are available at the New York Institute of Otolaryngology and Aesthetic Surgery for pediatric patients. 


Conservative treatments include medications or therapy to help your child deal with issues in their ears, nose, or throat. Dr. Bhayani provides access to hearing aids, cochlear implants, and speech pathology for children of all ages. 


He prescribes medications for issues like chronic sinusitis or recurrent ear infections. These medications may include antibiotics, corticosteroids, or antihistamines to help your child overcome allergies or asthma symptoms.


Minimally invasive surgery is also provided at the practice. If your child needs their tonsils or adenoids removed or tubes placed in their ears, Dr. Bhayani can help. Nasal obstructions may also require balloon sinuplasty, which is another minimally invasive type of procedure to open their nasal passages.
