Our physicians are skilled in performing stapedectomy and ossicular reconstruction to correct hearing loss related to problems with the ossicles (hearing bones). Our surgeons also perform reconstructive surgery (atresia repair) for children and adults with congenital underdevelopment of the ear and hearing structures. Additionally, among the most common of the services provided by our surgeons are the treatment of adults and children with cholesteatoma, chronic otitis media (chronic ear infections) and eardrum perforations.
We evaluate all forms of dizziness at the Wichita Ear Clinic. State-of-the-art vestibular and balance testing allows us to differentiate between inner-ear and central causes of dizziness and imbalance. Our audiology staff has expertise in performing electronystagmography (ENG), platform posturography (Equitest), Dix-Hallpike testing, and electrocochleography (ECOG) to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of inner ear vestibular and balance problems. Treatment is individualized and may include medication, vestibular rehabilitation or surgery. Our on-site vestibular rehabilitation program can successfully treat many disorders of the inner ear balance system including the canalith-repositioning maneuver (Epley maneuver) for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). We also provide state-of-the-art treatment for Meniere's disease including medical therapy, surgery and intratympanic gentamycin perfusion.
Tinnitus can be evaluated and diagnosed at the Wichita Ear Clinic. We offer coping techniques for tinnitus from hearing aids to tinnitus maskers for the alleviation of tinnitus.
