Happy Wednesday! For today’s Wellness Wednesday, we are going to talk about the little ones!
Did you know we see kids too!?
Dr. Josh is one of the few ENT surgeons that treats adults and children!
One of the most common treatments Dr. Josh helps children with is Tonsil and/or Adenoid Hypertrophy!
What is “Hypertrophy” you might ask? Hypertrophy means that an organ or tissue is becoming larger due to an increase in the size of its cells. If the effects of the enlarged Tonsils/Adenoids are significant enough, it is recommended that they be removed!
Symptoms of enlarged Tonsils/Adenoids are; Snoring, Sleep Apnea, Breathing through the Mouth instead of the Nose, Consistent Runny Nose, and Recurrent Ear Infections.
Some of the effects of enlarged Tonsils/Adenoids include; Long Term Sleep Apnea, Jaw Misalignment due to prolonged mouth breathing, Middle Ear Infections, and Recurrent Colds or Respiratory infections.
Dr. Josh has 4 young children of his own, and he takes exceptional care of every child that comes to our clinic! He understands the stress of being a parent with a sick child.
If you feel like your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms or effects, call us! (763)-296-3277
