Taking Care of You: Otology and Neurotology
The Vanderbilt Otology and Neurotology team diagnoses and treats ear disorders related to balance, hearing loss, and skull base tumors. Our team runs one of the busiest ear disorder programs in the country and has performed more than 25,000 ear surgeries. We have been a leading cochlear implant center for forty years, having performed our first Cochlear Implant in 1980. We have the largest cochlear implant program by volume of surgery and research in the United States.
Patient Care Excellence
The Vanderbilt Otology and Neurotology team has recently introduced a new coordinated care option for out-of-town patients seeking our expertise. Patients can undergo testing, a physician consultation and, if necessary, implant placement all during one full-day visit to Vanderbilt. It's part of our team's commitment to putting patient care first and improving the overall quality of care.
Vanderbilt Otology and Neurotology also works closely with experts in neurosurgery, audiology, radiation oncology, speech-language pathology and neurology to create innovative treatment options and make groundbreaking research discoveries in the field. Our Otology and Neurotology fellowship program is one of the oldest and most highly-regarded fellowships in the world. Our program gives fellows hands-on experience working with world-class surgeons and cutting-edge technology.
