Otology involves the diagnosis and treatment of ear diseases, as well as hearing and balance disorders, including tinnitus, ear infections (otitis media), hearing loss, Meniere’s disease, and others. These conditions may cause symptoms such as ear pain, headaches, fever, dizziness, hearing loss, and discharge. Many ear conditions are especially common in children, who may require special care for their condition. Our NYC ear doctors are specially trained to handle all aspects of inner ear conditions, which play a major role in the functioning of the eyes, bones, and joints to help maintain balance. Learn more.
