Considering ENT surgery? Choose experienced pediatric specialists
Ear, nose and throat problems are one of the most common reasons for surgery in children. Children’s Mercy has the region’s top pediatric fellowship-trained ENT surgeons.
Whether your child needs a simple outpatient procedure or a complex, life-saving surgery, you’ll have the very best team on the job.
We use gentle, pediatric-specific techniques for medical imaging like x-rays and CT scans, so that your child is as safe and comfortable as possible during any necessary imaging studies.
Our pediatric anesthesiologists are an active member of your child’s care team before, during and after their surgery or procedure. We administer anesthesia for more than 27,000 kids per year—that’s 74 per day—so our team is experienced at finding just-right doses of medication for kids of all sizes.
In addition to excellent medical care, we have social, emotional and financial supports in place to help your family handle all aspects of your child’s care.
