We are the only center in the region using a minimally invasive approach to many ear diseases, Endoscopic Ear Surgery.This entails using endoscopes to perform surgery though the ear canal rather than from a large incision behind the ear.

Other specialty procedures include:

  • BAHA/Osia implants: Bone-conduction hearing implants

  • Cochlear Implantation: coordinated care for evaluation, surgical placement, and programming of cochealr implants
  • Gamma-knife treatment of skull base tumors related to inner ear structures
