Ear, Hearing & Balance Center Menu
The Ear, Hearing & Balance Center provides expert surgical treatment for disorders involving the ear, skull base and temporal bone. Part of University Hospitals Ear, Nose & Throat Institute in Cleveland, OH, the center treats both adults and children with these conditions.
Our center’s team includes fellowship-trained neurotologists collaborating with partner physicians and surgeons specializing in neurosurgery, balance and vestibular disorders, hearing loss, cancer and interventional radiology. They perform all types of skull base surgery, including posterior, anterior and middle cranial base procedures.
For skull base disorders, UH combines the most advanced microscopic and robotic surgery, as well as radiation technologies, including CyberKnife® and Gamma Knife. In addition, UH is developing a proton beam suite. During proton beam therapy, patients receive extremely precise radiation dosing. Once this specialized suite is available, UH will be among just three hospitals in the U.S. with CyberKnife®, Gamma Knife and proton beam therapy—all under one roof.
The center addresses even the most rare and challenging ear and skull base conditions. Our accomplishments include:
Specialized physician training is a key component of the center’s mission. Our facility features an ten-station temporal bone skull base surgery laboratory where students and residents, and practicing otolaryngologists practice advanced surgical techniques. Because of its largely unique characteristics, this lab draws visitors from hospitals from around the country and the world. In fact, some institutions are planning to build their own version of the lab.
