Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscience

Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SCDS) is a medical condition of the inner ear, leading to hearing and balance symptoms to different extents in those affected. The symptoms are caused by a thinning or complete absence of the part of the temporal bone overlying the superior semicircular canal of the vestibular system. It often becomes symptomatic after physical trauma to the head or a severe pressure-altering event. The presentation can vary quite dramatically from one patient to another. Ear and Balance Institute has one of, if not the largest, experience in the diagnosis and treatment of SSCD in the world. We have become an international referral center for SCDS. For more information about SSCD, see this book chapter authored by Dr. Gianoli.

Ear and Balance Institute is a state-of-the-art facility specializing in a full range of hearing health care services to evaluate, diagnosis and treat hearing disorders. Dr. Harvey is committed to ongoing education and training in the pursuit of more effective hearing loss treatment.
