Otology & Neurotology

The Otology-Neurotology Division provides comprehensive patient care for all disease and disorders involving the ear and adjacent skull base. The division evaluates approximately 4,000 patients annually, many of whom require care for the following diseases and conditions:

  • Meniere's Disease
  • Otosclerosis
  • Chronic ear disease/cholesteatoma
  • Sensorineural hearing loss
  • Congenital aural atresia
  • Acoustic tumors
  • Glomus tumors
  • Facial paralysis

Our Services

The division provides diagnostic, medical and surgical expertise for the entire spectrum of otology-neurotology, from basic ear problems, such as tubes and tympanoplasty for chronic otitis media, to the evaluation and treatment of more complex problems including dizziness, sensorineural hearing loss and facial paralysis.

Colleagues in head and neck oncology, neurosurgery, and neurobiology often provide a multidisciplinary approach to optimize patient outcomes for complex skull base and intracranial tumors, such as acoustic tumors and glomus tumors.

Dedicated programs have been developed in several areas that involve a team of physicians and audiologists. Examples include the Cochlear Implant Program and Vestibular–Balance Program.

Technology and Resources

The division utilizes digital image systems and video capture in outpatient examination rooms. Gamma knife radiosurgery (Perfexion) is provided to selected patients with skull base tumors.
