Quicker Healing Tonsillectomies

Our pediatric ENT specialists utilize coblation or microdebrider technology to make tonsillectomies less painful with a quicker healing time for your child. Using the microdebrider, which has a small rotating tip, our surgeons can remove 95 percent of the tonsils very precisely, leaving just a thin layer of tissue that protects the throat muscles. This can greatly reduce postoperative pain and recovery time.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Our pediatric ENT surgeons specialize in advanced endoscopic sinus surgery. Using digital guidance technologies, real-time imaging allows the surgeon to conduct complex sinus procedures with far greater accuracy than ever before. This helps us to support kids’ quicker, whole recovery in body, mind and spirit.

Cochlear Implants

If it’s possible to help your child hear again, we will do everything possible to make it a reality. Our ENT experts performed the first single surgery bilateral cochlear implant in Central Florida. Our skilled pediatric otolaryngologists have dedicated bionic research to back their success in implanted hearing devices.
