Paediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT)

Otorhinolaryngology for babies and children

Our team of paediatric ENT consultants diagnose and treat many health conditions related to the ear, nose and throat

Overview

Ear, nose and throat issues are common in babies and children. Although they're often as simple as a blocked nose or sore throat, these symptoms may need investigating if they recur. At The Portland Hospital and The Harley Street Clinic Children's Hospital, our exceptional paediatric ENT consultants treat all kinds of otolaryngology conditions. So no matter if your child needs a short course of antibiotics or complex surgery, they'll get the highest level of care with us. Our paediatric ENT consultants work closely with consultants from specialties such as audiology, and speech and language therapists to help make sure your child's development isn't affected by their condition or any treatment they might need. If they have surgery and stay overnight, they'll receive exceptional and one-to-one care in a fully equipped, level three paediatric intensive care unit (PICU).

At HCA UK we recognise the importance of giving our patients peace of mind. That's why our guaranteed fixed prices are fully inclusive, with no hidden extras.

Expertise

Our paediatric ENT consultants are able to carry out a range of surgical procedures on your baby or child.

  • Adenoid and tonsil removal

    Need to know

    If your child suffers from acute or chronic tonsillitis or other symptoms including sleep apnoea or glue ear, your consultant may recommend having your child's adenoids and tonsils removed. This combined procedure is commonly performed by our paediatric ear, nose and throat surgeons.

  • Adenoid removal

    Need to know

    Adenoids are part of the immune system in children. They begin to shrink around the age of seven and usually disappear by adulthood. Adenoids can become inflamed due to frequent infections or allergies. They can cause uncomfortable symptoms for your child, such as breathing problems or ear infections.

  • Tonsil removal

    Need to know

    Tonsils are part of the immune system and help to protect the body against illness and bacteria. However, if you suffer from recurrent infections, persistent discomfort, sleep apnoea or other associated complaints, tonsil removal may be recommended.

  • Grommets for glue ear

    Need to know

    Glue ear is a build-up of fluid behind the eardrum. This can make it hard to hear. It usually clears on its own but if it doesn't, it can impact your child’s speech development or be a sign of more serious disease in adults. Grommets are tiny tubes that allow air to circulate in the middle ear.

  • Frenectomy

    Need to know

    Frenulums in the mouth are thin bands of tissue, usually at the underside of the tongue, which can sometimes make it difficult for your child to nurse, eat or speak properly. A quick procedure can release or remove this tissue.
