Pediatric Otolaryngology


The Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology clinical practice is located at Seattle Children’s Hospital, an affiliate of the University of Washington. We work closely with other departments at Seattle Children’s, including speech pathology and craniofacial anomalies, to deliver comprehensive care to children while informing and supporting their families.

Our division believes strongly in the Seattle Children’s Hospital mission statement of continually trying to improve the health of children by combining research and teaching with the care of pediatric patients. Being a part of the WWAMI regional network allows us to concentrate experience and develop new expertise in patients with complex or routine medical problems alike.

In addition to providing services for common situations such as large tonsils or ear infections, we have developed specialty programs for integrated care of complex problems. The Childhood Communications Center focuses on children with significant hearing or speech problems. The Vascular Anomalies Center  provides care for children with birthmarks or masses such as hemangiomas. We also have specialty clinics for sinus problems, voice issues, swallowing and breathing difficulties, thyroid masses, and palate (speech) problems.
