Overview

From common illnesses such as ear infections, sinusitis and obstructive sleep apnea to more unusual disorders like congenital hearing loss and neck masses, Akron Children's Hospital specialists are trained in managing and treating children with diseases and disorders of the ear, nose, throat and related parts of the head and neck.

Only one focus: kids.

We understand that working with children can be a challenge. They can’t always say what’s bothering them, or answer medical questions. And they’re not always able to be patient and cooperative during a medical exam.

We know how to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative, and we do our best to minimize pain, discomfort and anxiety. We also understand the physical and emotional needs of children and encourage active participation of parents in all aspects of care.

A team approach to care.

We work as a team with other pediatric specialists such as audiologists and speech-language pathologists to care for conditions affecting the ear, nose, throat and related parts of the head and neck.

These include:

  • Hearing loss
  • Ear disorders
  • Nasal problems
  • Throat disorders
  • Head and neck masses
  • Airway disorders

We offer the full spectrum of therapies and procedures to treat these conditions, including airway reconstruction, tracheotomy, ear tube insertions, sinus surgery, cochlear implants and bone conduction implants.

What should families expect when they come for an appointment?

At Akron Children’s, your child’s health and safety is our priority. Please continue to bring your child for wellness visits, vaccinations or sick care appointments that keep children healthy. We want to assure you that we have taken additional precautions to ensure a safe environment for your child and family. The following are additional safety efforts, in addition to our normal cleaning protocols, that we are taking to help you be comfortable bringing your child to an appointment.

Limiting the Number of Caregivers and Face Covering

We are asking that only one caregiver accompanies a patient to the appointment. Everyone visiting an Akron Children's facility is asked to wear masks or face coverings, except for kids under 2 or those with sensory issues. Masks will be provided for visitors who do not bring their own.

Health Screening Station Ahead Sign

Checking In and Screening of Visitors

When you arrive at Akron Children's, you will be met by a greeter who will take your temperature and ask you a few questions.

While in the waiting rooms, you'll notice signs and a limited number of chairs. This is to remind our patients to keep 6 feet of physical distance between your family and others.

What Should I Do if I Suspect my Child has COVID?

Call your child’s healthcare professional if your child is sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing and has been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Your health care professional will work with Ohio’s public health department and the CDC to determine if your child needs to be tested for COVID-19.
