About the Ear Institute at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary at Mount Sinai

Nearly 48 million Americans experience hearing loss that interferes with their daily lives at home, work, and school. At the Ear Institute of New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, our unparalleled services and expertise make a significant quality of live improvement for these individuals, ranging from newborns to geriatrics.

For more than 200 years, the Ear Institute has built an extraordinary reputation for forging diagnostic, treatment, and research breakthroughs in the field of otology and lateral skull base disorders. This includes pioneering and developing minimally invasive endoscopic ear surgery for everything from tympanoplasty (repairing the eardrum) to stapedectomy to removal of glomus tumors.

We are among the first in the nation to use both endoscopes and exoscopes (robotic arm microscopes that enhance visualization) in the treatment of skull base pathology and pioneers in using virtual reality for balance disorders. Our Cochlear Implant and Bone Anchored Implant Program is one of the largest and most comprehensive in the nation, providing the full range of services for those with specialized hearing needs.
