Otology & Neurotology (Study of the Ear)

Otology is that branch of ear, nose and throat surgery that deals specifically with the diagnosis, treatment and surgery of diseases of the ear. Neurotology is a division of Otology that not only deals with the ear but also those portions of the brain that are important for hearing and balance.  Neurotology bridges the gap between otology and neurosurgery.

We at Valley Health – Ear, Nose and Throat have the expertise to evaluate and treat all types of hearing loss, balance problems or vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), tumors of the ear and skull base such as acoustic neuromas and facial nerve paralysis. We have worked hard to develop the appropriate rehabilitation programs that are essential for speech development after cochlear implantation.

Dr. Jung specializes in:

  • Cochlear Implants in Children and Adults
  • Vestibular Nerve Surgery for balance disorders
  • Skull Base Surgery and treatment of tumors of the inner ear balance nerves
