Does your child need ear tubes or do you think he/she is a candidate for them?
Chronic ear infections are uncomfortable for children and parents alike. Fevers, sleepless nights and missed days of work can all result from chronic ear infections.
Abington Surgical Center can help!
Ear infections are the most common reason why parents bring their child to the doctor. Approximately 500,000 children get ear tubes per year making it the second most common procedure for children.
Finding a Specialist
It is always in your best interest to be your own advocate if your child is uncomfortable. Although your pediatrician may be in network with specific specialists or referred you to a specialist they have a good relationship with, if appointment access is prolonging your child from getting relief, it may be in your best interest to expand your options of specialists.
