Neuro-Otology


We provide clinical evaluations of patients complaining of dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, tinnitus, and hearing disorders. Our research focuses on developing new tests of the balance system and new treatment for dizziness and imbalance. We are particularly interested in the genetics of familial disorders that lead to dizziness and imbalance. Faculty: Robert W. Baloh, M.D., Joanna C.
