Neurotology

A subspecialty within otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), neurotology is the medical and surgical management of diseases of the ear and the skull base (the interior, floor of the skull upon which the brain rests) around the ear. This includes hearing and balance disorders, the facial nerve, the ear and related structures.

Eisenhower neurotologists perform surgeries to improve hearing, cochlear implantation for hearing rehabilitation in deaf individuals, as well as to remove cancers involving the bone around the ear.
