Juris Medicus has a board-certified otolaryngologist and head and neck surgeon who is fellowship trained in neurotology.
Neurotology is a subspecialty of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery. This branch of medicine focuses on neurological disorders of the ear and how it connects to the brain. Neurotology is closely related to otology but adds the training and skill to operate within the skull and on the parts of the brain and nervous system related to hearing and balance. Neurotology bridges the gap between otology and neurosurgery.
Neurotologists are board-certified otolaryngologists who are fellowship trained with focus on neurological related and inner ear concerns. They have advanced training in the medical and surgical care of patients with diseases that affect the inner ear, balance system, temporal bone, skull base, and related structures of the neck. A neurotologist sees adult and pediatric patients with lateral skull base tumors, hearing, balance, and facial nerve disorders, as well as chronic ear disease. They commonly collaborate with neurosurgeons.
