Division of Audiology
The Division of Audiology in NYU Langone Health’s Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery provides comprehensive clinical care and trains future clinicians in the latest techniques for the assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of people with hearing, balance, and other auditory disorders.
Our audiologists work together with otolaryngologists and speech pathologists to provide the full spectrum of audiology, balance testing, and rehabilitation for children and adults. This includes performing objective assessment; evaluating patients for hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and bone-anchored implants; and dispensing, adjusting, and servicing these devices. We also provide the most advanced therapy available for tinnitus, evaluate patients for central auditory processing disorders, and fit patients for custom ear protection.
The Division of Audiology educates audiology students, medical students, otolaryngology residents, and otology fellows on existing and emerging technologies to treat people with hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, and balance disorders.
In our comprehensive auditory and vestibular testing facilities, trainees at all levels gain experience conducting the full spectrum of diagnostic and electrophysiological tests, including the following:
- pure-tone hearing testing and audiogram interpretation
- otoacoustic immittance testing
- neurological assessment and auditory threshold determination with auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing
- dizziness and balance testing with videonystagmography, vestibular evoked myogenic potentials, and rotary chair testing
- inner ear and auditory nerve evaluation with electrocochleography and ABR testing
- analysis of facial nerve viability with electroneuronography
Students, residents, and fellows in our division also work with faculty at the Cochlear Implant Center, learning comprehensive management of cochlear implants from candidacy assessment through device programming and speech rehabilitation services.
Audiology Clinical Care
Audiologists at NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Center East 38th Street perform balance- and hearing-related diagnostic, surgical, amplification, and rehabilitation services for children and adults with hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness, vertigo, and balance disorders.
In addition to assessing patients for hearing aids and assistive listening devices, our audiologists manage all care related to these devices and collaborate with otolaryngologists to develop individualized treatment plans. In addition, we specialize in fitting patients for custom ear protection, testing for auditory processing assessment, and providing referrals for speech–language pathology services at NYU Langone’s Rusk Rehabilitation.
