Services For Children
Children are not just mini adults. Their anatomy, health reserve, disease presentation, development and psychosocial needs differ across the age groups of newborns, neonates, infants, toddlers, young and older children and those in their teenage years.
The investigations frequently need to be more comprehensive, with the full armamentarium available, to tailor for newborns to children across all ages, and with different temperaments and stages of development. Extra time at the visit is needed. The concerns of and support from their family and caregivers are equally important. Coordinating care across multidisciplinary medical, educational and developmental bodies is also critical for best outcomes. This is possible with support from Dr Lynne Lim, an established Child Ear Nose Throat ENT specialist in Singapore with a strong network of equally established multi-disciplinary specialist colleagues. Her ENT specialist centre staff are experienced in caring for children.
After completing general ENT specialization in 2001, Dr Lynne Lim sub-specialized in Paediatric ENT at the renowned Cincinnati Children Hospital & Medical Centre, America, from 2001-2004, under the mentorship of the giant of Paediatric ENT, Dr Robin Cotton. The CCHMC ENT is an American Otolaryngology Board accredited world leader in Paediatric care, with strong subgroups of paediatric airway/ pulmonary/ swallowing; hearing/ speech and communication; snoring and syndromes; sinus and allergy; head and neck tumor management, research and education. It has a proud tradition of training many of the alumni leaders in paediatric ENT worldwide.
