Many pediatric disorders are treated in the office including ear infections, tonsillitis, sinusitis, nosebleeds, tongue-tie, hearing loss, dizziness, headache, and cough. Correct diagnosis and aggressive medical management often solve the problem without the need for advanced tests and surgery.
Pediatric reflux can cause many symptoms and can cause ear infections, sinusitis, and asthma. Click the links below for more information on reflux:
When middle ear fluid persists for more than four months, tubes are placed in children’s ears to improve hearing. Fluid left in the middle ear for a prolonged period of time can cause hearing loss and chronic ear infection. Tubes may be placed in children with greater than 5 episodes of ear infections in a year to reduce the number of courses of antibiotics. Dr. Rosner makes caring for tubes easy.
Adenoids are lymphoid tissue located behind the nose in the upper part of the throat. Adenoids can be removed when their enlargement causes chronic nasal blockage and for repeat episodes of sinusitis and ear infections. Bacterial biofilms living in the crevices in the adenoids can be removed, preventing further infection. Dr. Rosner uses cautery to vaporize the adenoids, allowing for minimal bleeding, shortened surgical time, minimal discomfort and a speedy recovery.
Tonsils are lymphoid tissue located in the sides of the throat. They can be removed in cases of more than 5 episodes of strep throat or tonsillitis in a year. Tonsils can also be removed to resolve snoring that disrupts sleep. (Sleep disordered breathing). A cautery or coblator is used to remove the tonsils. This allows for a rapid and safe procedure with minimal blood loss. Dr. Rosner believes in making sure your child is comfortable following surgery. Ibuprofen, steroids, antibiotics, and narcotics are used to control discomfort.
