Pediatric Ear, Nose And Throat

Ear, nose, and throat disorders can be painful for children as well as for those caring for them. At American Hospital Dubai, we know that you want the best care for your child. That’s why our fellowship-trained Pediatrics ENT Specialists practice with an emphasis on ensuring your child’s optimal health and development.

Pediatric ear, nose & throat care at American Hospital’s Otolaryngology is comprehensive and caring. By choosing us, your child will have access to state-of-the-art diagnostic testing and a full spectrum of treatment for all ENT disorders. There are many choices in Dubai Media City when your child has a Pediatric ENT issue. Our fellowship-trained physicians at American Hospital provide the latest services and compassionate care to all young patients.

Because of the constantly changing development, certain pathologies have different consequences from those of adults, and this is especially true with ENT complications in children. Sensory disorders such as deafness lead to speech issues, comprehension difficulties, and academic impediments. Sometimes it becomes quite challenging to distinguish between issues when young children experience a language delay or an attention disorder. This is why early detection and screening enable our physicians to provide the most updated recommendations for the optimal care of your child.

When necessary, our team at American Hospital works in a multidisciplinary approach with other pediatric sub-specialists, to ensure that each child’s communication, development, and learning needs are fully evaluated and that the appropriate care is provided. Additionally, our Department is equipped for all age groups and we are working collaboratively with other healthcare professionals for the best assessment and care for your child.
