Depending on your child's situation, he or she may benefit from seeing other pediatric specialists at Floating Hospital. In these cases, we can coordinate care with doctors in otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), pulmonology and other areas. And if medical management doesn't provide a solution for your child, we can consult with Floating Hospital surgeons to determine if surgery makes sense.
