Dizziness & Balance

The diagnosis and treatment of dizziness and balance disorders is a complex task that requires collaboration amongst the physician, audiologist, radiologist, and physical therapist. At Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeons of Western New England LLC, our physicians begin with a comprehensive historical evaluation of the problem. Based on that initial evaluation, objective testing is often performed, including comprehensive audiometry and radiologic imaging.

Further specialized evaluation of inner ear function is done in our vestibular lab using state-of-the-art videonystagmography (VNG) equipment, available in no other practice in Western Massachusetts. Our areas of expertise include:

  • Medical and surgical treatment of Ménière's disease
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Migraine associated dizziness
  • Labyrinthitis

We often find that treatment of balance disorders include the use of vestibular rehabilitation therapy. We work closely with a number of vestibular rehabilitation therapists who are trained to provide specialized therapeutic regimens based on our findings and recommendations.
