Depending on your child's situation, your child's physician may refer him or her to an otolaryngologist for specialty care. Otolaryngology is the medical specialty that focuses on disorders of the ear, nose, and throat. They are also known as ENT physicians.

ENT physicians may help treat your child with certain problems such as ear infections, hearing loss, breathing problems, or sinus problems. ENT physicians may also be involved if your child needs ear tubes or tonsil surgery.
