Pediatric ENT Services
All children are very unique. And so are the health issues a child faces with his or her ears, nose, and throat. We, at ENT For Kids, understand and are equipped with the staff and resources to provide your child with the appropriate and necessary treatment options for any ENT issue. With more than 20 years’ experience, Dr. Garner and staff have seen many different ENT health issues in children of all ages. He and his staff have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to care for and treat many pediatric ENT health issues. Common health issues include outer ear infections, otitis media (or inflammation of the middle ear), sinusitis, sleep apnea (sometimes referred to as “obstructive sleep apnea”), and tonsillitis. If your child needs professional ear, nose, throat, or head and neck care, please consider our pediatric ENT services at ENT For Kids in Columbia, SC.
At the Carolina Sleep Institute, a division of ENT For Kids, we also perform sleep services and studies on all children, from birth to 21 years old. Our sleep lab at the Carolina Sleep Institute in Columbia provides a child with a clean, comfortable, and kid-friendly environment. This is where his or her sleep can be monitored overnight. Our trained sleep center staff can also provide kids with anything they need to enable their best sleep. For an overnight visit, a parent or guardian is required to spend the night with their child. Often times, a parent’s presence enables their child to get to sleep faster. Once a child is asleep, we can do our job by monitoring their sleep patterns closely to determine exactly what is going on. After a thorough evaluation of the acquired sleep data, we then give you a diagnosis and provide you with the best treatment options available.
