Advanced Care, Close to Home, for Complex Conditions of the Ear, Nose and Throat
The advanced pediatric ENT and airway program at Dayton Children’s is led by Ravi Elluru, MD, PhD, an internationally respected, board-certified otolaryngologist with extensive experience in evaluating and treating complex conditions of the ear, nose and throat (ENT). Until recently, children with these complex conditions had to travel to Cincinnati or Columbus for treatment and long-term follow-up. But now, this specialized type of care is available right here at Dayton Children’s.
Dr. Elluru is widely recognized for his clinical expertise and research. He takes a conservative approach to care, pursuing non-surgical and minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. He believes strongly that the healing process requires both excellent medical care and a warm relationship between physician and family that is based on trust and good communication.
