Dr. Daniel E Bruegger has the following 2 specialties
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
An otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Dr. Bruegger is the best physician, surgeon, and doctor I have ever met. I've had nearly 85 surgeries for RRP, and he's been my physician since I was 2. He is kind and warm, and always puts me at ease when in the operating room! He treats his patients like he would treat his own children. He has literally saved my life countless times! I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him. I'm not lying when I say I would travel a million miles just to see him. No other doctor will ever compare!
Dr. Bruegger started caring for our son when he was just two months old. His expertise and advise greatly reduced the worry we had as parents and prepared us for our son's surgery. I would absolutely recommend him. The staff were always kind to us at every appointment - we had several over the course of 4 years. Sometimes our wait was 5 minutes and other times it was an hour but I wouldn't consider taking our son to any other group. When I look at my son's small scar I think of how scared we were at first and how comforted we felt by the Children's Mercy staff and Dr. Bruegger. Our son's recovery was so fast we couldn't believe it! Amanda
My daughter has been a patient for 3 years and I always dread calling to get in to see him because they put me on hold for 10 minutes or hang up on me. It's a nightmare. I have also left messages that have never been returned. It makes seeing him a huge headache. Currently I have called three times over the last week and am on hold again. This is specific to the KU Med/KU Med West location. I tried calling the Children's Mercy location to make an appt but they don't have our chart and could not help me. He is a specialist in lymphangiomas, so my options are limited. It's sad and frustrating that it is this difficult!
One of the best doctors I have worked with.
