A dizzy spell prompted Luverne Druecker, 80, to visit his family doctor, Bradley Beer, MD. Concerned about possible inner ear issues, Dr. Beer referred him to Aaron Benson, MD, at Mercy Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic. Read more on page 4.
No matter whether you have a common, complex or uncommon otological or neurotological issue, you'll receive comprehensive medical care at Mercy.
Mercy’s Hearing & Balance Clinic provides treatment and management of hearing, balance, dizziness, inner ear, complex skull-base conditions (acoustic neuromas, glomus tumors), and facial nerve disorders for infants, children and adults.
Many common congenital ear disorders are identified at birth. Microtia (misshaped outer ear), anotia (missing outer ear) and aural atresia (no ear canal) can result in hearing loss. When considering options for treatment, Mercy's experienced professionals can help you make healthcare decisions most appropriate for you and your family.
Surgical intervention may be an option for improved hearing.
Our sense of balance is something we rely on continuously to maintain stability and coordinate movement. The ability of the body to maintain stability involves the interaction of information from the inner ear (vestibular system), eyes (visual system) and the feeling in your feet (proprioceptive system). When one of more of these systems is not functioning appropriately, it can result in the loss of balance. Learn more about dizziness and balance disorders.
