Experience Your Exam on Screen

Certain patient services make the UPMC Ear and Hearing Center a top ranked program. Our minimally invasive exam process allows some patients to view their exams on a 17-inch screen.

This technology provides a more detailed image of your ears, allowing you to see your eardrums and helping increase your knowledge of your health problem.

We can also use this technology to record the exam and keep a visual record of your progress and treatments.

Research on Diseases That Affect the Ear

The Ear and Hearing Center is active in clinical and laboratory research focused on hearing and diseases that affect the ear and temporal bone.

Current studies include outcomes following stapes surgery and the control rate of acoustic neuroma growth following CyberKnife® radiosurgery.

Patients may be asked, but are not required, to take part in a research study.
