Congenital or acquired hearing loss caused by the following:

  • Genetic mutations
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Age
  • Noise-trauma
  • Cholesteatoma
  • Tumors (such as vestibular schwannomas/acoustic neuromas, glomus tumors, cancer)
  • Trauma
  • Superior semicircular canal dehiscence


Surgeries Performed

  • Cochlear implantation
  • Stapes surgery  (laser stapedotomy)
  • Ossiculoplasty (ossicular chain reconstruction)
  • Tympanoplasty (drum repair)
  • Mastoidectomy (for chronic ear disease and cholesteatoma
  • Canalplasty (such as for exostoses)


  • Bone anchored hearing aid (BAHA) surgery
  • Vestibular schwannoma/acoustic neuroma surgery (via middle fossa, translabyrinthine and retrosigmoid craniotomy)
  • Labyrinthectomy (for intractable Meniere’s disease)
  • Temporal bone resection (for tumors)
  • Repair of superior semicircular canal dehiscence
