Otolaryngologists-commonly known as ear, nose and throat physicians-evaluate and treat patients with problems of the head and neck area, including the ear, middle ear, nose, sinuses, oral cavity and larynx. Otolaryngology is somewhat unique among other specialties, as its doctors receive training in both medicine and surgery, providing a wide range of clinical services.

Pediatric ENT services

Dignity Health Medical Group-Bakersfield is well prepared to meet the special needs of children. Our team is equipped with smaller instruments sized to treat their young patients.

Children as young as infants can be treated for nearly all types of ear, nose, and throat health conditions. The most common procedures performed on children of all ages are tonsillectomies, adenoidectomies, and other airway issues, but they are also susceptible to chronic nasal and sinus conditions, voice box issues, and more.

Our team takes a family-centered approach to care, closely communicating with parents and children. Children receive the time and attention they need to understand the procedure on their own level, and guardians and children get the support they need to feel confident about the caring and skill of the staff.
