Programs and Services

Sleep Disorders Center

Children with airway obstruction caused by enlarged tonsils or other blockages at the nasal passage can develop obstructive sleep apnea, a breathing disorder that causes short pauses in a child’s breathing. This disruption can result in daytime sleepiness and other complications. Our board-certified sleep medicine specialists expertly diagnose the cause so a treatment plan can be coordinated.

Our Team

We bring together experts from pediatric otolaryngology, as well as support from specialized nurses, speech-language pathologists, social workers and more to create a plan for initial treatment and ongoing care to meet the specific needs of your child.

Locations

Our ENT services at Wolfson Children’s Hospital help children from North Florida, South Georgia and beyond. We’re located on the south bank of the St. Johns River in Jacksonville.
