Ears, including hearing loss
Pediatric diseases: Common pediatric ENT problems include middle ear infections (otitis media), tonsillitis and adenoid enlargement. Frequent middle ear infections may require the placement of tubes in the eardrums to relieve pressure, alleviate pain and prevent future infections. Enlarged or frequently infected tonsils may require removal, as may enlarged adenoids.

Hearing loss may be caused by damage to the structures of the ear or acoustic nerve or by degenerative aging changes. An ENT surgeon will evaluate the severity of the hearing loss and recommend medical or surgical intervention if appropriate.
Nose, Sinuses and Allergies
Nasal abnormalities include nosebleeds, deviated septum, nasal polyps and nasal airway obstruction. Sinuses may become inflamed or blocked, due to allergies, structural abnormalities or chronic infection.
