UTHSC Pediatric Otolaryngology:

Our Pediatric Otolaryngologists provide medical and surgical treatment for children with disease of the ear, nose and throat at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We treat more than 7,000 children and perform more than 3,000 surgeries each year.

The team includes seven board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologists, two board-certified nurse practioners at Le Bonheur and at St. Jude, as well as audiologists and speech-language pathologists at both institutions. Additionally our team also includes surgeons specializing in skull base surgery, head and neck surgery and ear surgery. Our physicians are also finding new ways to treat their patients. They have published in more than 300 publications and made more than 500 clinical presentations.

Our otolaryngologists often work with a team of pediatric specialists including: pulmonologists, gastroenterologists, cardiologists, oncologists, and other surgical subspecialists.
The ENT Division at St. Jude provides a full range of consultation, diagnostic and surgical services to both hospitalized patients and out-patients. Most services are provided at St. Jude in the ENT clinic, inpatient room or surgical suites. Other services are provided at Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center. The Division of ENT provides services to patients for primary and secondary ENT diagnosis related to pediatric cancer and hematologic disorders and expertise pertaining to airway maintenance, head and neck cancer surgery and reconstruction, tracheostomy and cochlear implants.

The ENT clinic consists of seven pediatric ENT specialists, a Head and Neck and Reconstructive surgeron, a Skull Base surgeon and an Otologist. They are all members of the teaching faculty at the University of Tennessee School of Medicine.
