Ear Disorders

UTHSC Hearing and Balance Center:

The UTHSC Hearing and Balance Center is dedicated to treatment of all problems patients can encounter with their ears. Hearing and balance problems are very common and can impact people at any age. Every patient with a hearing and balance disorder has a different story. Our goal is to understand your symptoms and develop a personal solution that meets your goals with respect to your hearing and balance.

The diagnosis and treatment of these disorders requires the expertise of a variety of medical professionals. The University of Tennessee Health Science Center Hearing and Balance Center brings together Neurotologists, Pediatric Otolaryngologists, Audiologists, and Physical Therapists to give each patient the comprehensive care that they need. This team offers the latest technological advances in the diagnosis and treatment of these orders, including “incisionless” endoscopic ear surgery, cochlear implantation, and skull base surgery. Our hearing specialists will work to reconnect you to your loved ones, and our balance team will work with you to help you get back control over your life from vertigo.

Our providers are leaders in the field, working with other national and international experts in the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, American Neurotology Society, American Otological Society, American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology, North American Skull Base Society, and others.
