Ear tubes

When ear infections interfere with hearing or occur frequently, your child may need ear tube surgery (myringotomy). Our expert ear, nose and throat surgeons perform a large volume of these procedures at Wolfson Children's each year, which means better results for kids. Learn more about surgery at Wolfson Children's.

Cochlear implant

Our expert ear, nose and throat surgeons have performed hundreds of successful cochlear implants in children. This can be a life-changing event, opening a new world of sound and language. Learn more about surgery at Wolfson Children's.

Wolfson Children's speech-language therapists help children learn the very basics of speech following activation of their cochlear implant.
