It was one of our amazing surgeons' birthday this past weekend: Dr. Brian Kulbersh! Pediatric ENT Associates at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham is so grateful to have him as part of our team. He is the director of the Vascular Malformations Treatment Group at Children’s of Alabama.

His specialties include:
- Management of complex vascular anomalies, hemangiomas, head and neck masses, and airway lesions
- Laryngotracheal reconstruction
- Management of pediatric sinus and chronic ear diseases

Did you know that he was recently selected as a 40 Under 40 recipient for the University of Georgia, which is an award given to the 40 most successful graduates of the university under 40 years of age? He has also been a Castle Connolly Top Doctor since 2020!

What are the signs of an ear infection in kids?

👂 Tugging, pulling or rubbing the ear
👂 Having a fever
👂 Fluid, blood or pus draining from the ear
👂 Difficulty hearing
👂 Not responding to your voice or commands
👂 Stumbling, acting dizzy or having balance problems

Although some ear infections can clear up on their own, it is important you seek medical attention if these symptoms persist for more than 2 days. The surgeons at Pediatric ENT Associates at Children's of AL in Birmingham have numerous years of experience of infant and child ear infection treatment. They can provide the best options for your toddler! Call us to make an appointment if your child is struggling with any of these symptoms!

According to the National Women's History Alliance, this year's National Women's History theme is "Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope."

Women from all over the world and of many different cultures continue to contribute light and love to families, communities, workplaces and beyond, every single day. These women are teachers, doctors, business owners, nurses, lawyers, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, and more! They are all such a vital part of our society and this month we celebrate who they are and the impact they make in the world around them.

As for our frontline women in medicine, science, and health: your bravery, hard work and dedication throughout the COVID-19 pandemic will always be admired, appreciated, and never forgotten. Thank you for all you do.

Happy National Women's History Month! 🤍

Neck masses in children can be due to a variety of causes, usually either congenital or inflammatory. These masses are most commonly benign in children, with the inflammatory type accounting for the majority. A complete and accurate history of symptoms and their onset is invaluable in aiding diagnosis of a pediatric neck mass by a pediatric otolaryngologist such as those at Pediatric ENT Associates in Birmingham, AL.

In many cases of neck masses due to infection, the swelling will go down on its own with no further treatment required. In other cases, medication or surgical excision may be needed. Your pediatric otolaryngologist will determine which course of neck lumps treatment is the best for your child.

Call us today to make an appointment if you suspect your child has a neck mass!

Sensory games are not only fun for your children, but can also be very educational!

They can learn a variety of things such as numbers, letters, color recognition, fine motor skills, shapes, and more! Here is a fun idea you can do with your kids: Lucky Charms Sensory Bin! 🍀

What you need:
🍀 Lucky Charms cereal
🍀 Two empty bins
🍀 Green cups
🍀 Tape
🍀 Fine motor tools (scoopers, tongs, etc.)

Fill one bin with the Lucky Charms cereal and fine motor tools and the other with the green cups. Label the green cups with drawn images of the marshmallow shapes you see in the cereal mix. Allow your kids to scavenger through the cereal and sort the marshmallows by placing them in the correct cups!

Is your child experiencing a persistent cough, a fever that developed days after cold-like symptoms began, ear pain, or even dental pain? Your child could have sinusitis!

Sinusitis is caused by an infection in any of the sinuses. The sinuses are hollow spaces in the head which can become infected following a cold or flu due to trapped mucous through blocked sinus drainage. The sinuses are lined with the same mucous membranes as the nose, meaning that as the nose gets congested and produces more mucous, so do the sinuses.

It is highly recommended to take steps to prevent infection through minor changes in the home environment. Dry weather or dryness caused by heat in the winter lead to irritation of the sinuses, but this can be prevented through the use of a small home humidifier. Wash hands frequently, and teach your children about how to prevent the spread of germs. Colds, allergies, and flu can all lead to sinusitis, so doing your best to prevent your child from becoming ill is the best way to prevent sinusitis.

Bring your child to Pediatric ENT Associates and let us give them the care they need to feel better! Call us or visit us online to request an appointment!

Vascular malformations are noncancerous birthmarks that affect children either from birth or within their first few months. There are treatments available that may help to reduce the appearance of vascular malformations, but these should be discussed thoroughly in order to weigh the pros and cons of various treatment options.

Treatment of a vascular malformation will depend on factors such as where the malformation is located, how large it is, and how severe it is. If a vascular malformation interferes with your child’s vision or breathing or causes other types of problems, treatment will be considered. There are lasers available which are able to reduce the appearance of port-wine stains, and for venous or lymphatic malformations, sclerotherapy or surgical removal are options.

Your surgeon at Pediatric ENT Associates at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham will walk you through your child’s treatment options and explain carefully the benefits and drawbacks of each potential treatment plan. If you feel your child would benefit by coming to see us for any vascular malformations they may have, call us or visit us online to request an appointment today!
