Regardless of the type of surgery that you are planning, you should always choose a surgeon who has lots of experience with cases specifically like yours. Therefore, when seeking an ear surgeon for a child, you should look for one who has performed many such procedures on children. It does not have to be a pediatric specialist; just be sure that the person has done many such operations on children. Since placing tubes in the ears is primarily done on children, as long as the surgeon you choose has done many of these procedures, you should be fine.
