Clinical Services

We treat both adult and pediatric patients with hearing and balance disorders. With expertise in the full breadth of diseases of the ear and skull base, the Upstate otology team combines experience and cutting edge technology to manage often complex disorders.

Conditions treated:

  • Hearing loss

  • Otosclerosis

  • Meniere’s Disease

  • Acoustic neuroma/vestibular schwannoma

  • Perforation of eardrum (tympanic membrane)

  • Chronic ear drainage

  • Ear infections

  • Sudden hearing loss

  • Superior Semicircular Canal dehiscence

  • Dizziness/Vertigo


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: Bone anchored hearing aid placement
  • 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
