Dr. Andrew Hotaling, director of Pediatric Otolaryngology at Loyola, says that many of his young patients come in for ear infections, hearing loss, speech delay, adenoid issues and airway problems. One of Dr. Hotaling's specialties is treating special needs children, especially kids with Down Syndrome. Over the years doctors have to come to learn that Down Syndrome can result in hearing problems, which can lead to speech difficulties. Loyola has pediatric anesthesiologists, which helps to ease the mind of a patient whose child needs surgery. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (708) 216-9637.
