About the Center for Hearing and Balance
The Center for Hearing and Balance at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City consists of physicians and audiologists who have many years of collective experience in the management of diseases of the ear. We are leaders in the treatment of cholesteatoma and chronic ear infections, acoustic neuroma and other skull base tumors, cochlear implants and other surgical solutions for hearing loss, and vertigo and balance disorders.
Our team of neurotologists, otolaryngologists, and audiologists is committed to advancing treatments of balance disorders. We utilize state-of-the-art technology to diagnose these vexing disorders and offer our patients the latest treatments for hearing loss, including digitally programmable hearing aids, implantable hearing devices, and cochlear implants. We are aware of the profound effect that hearing impairment can have on our patients in the workplace, for their families, and in daily life. Our philosophy is that better hearing can improve your quality of life.

Our Multidisciplinary Approach
The contemporary management of many hearing conditions requires a team approach. We are fortunate that Mount Sinai has experts in related disciplines, who collaborate together to determine the optimal treatment plan for each patient. This multidisciplinary approach leads to better and more certain outcomes for our patients. Examples are our longstanding collaboration with Neurosurgery in the treatment of acoustic neuroma and cerebrospinal fluid leaks and our relationship with Neurology and Rehab Medicine in the treatment of balance disorders.
