Our Areas of Expertise
Audiovestibular Medicine (AVM) is a world unique medical speciality for the investigation and treatment of hearing and balance problems, tinnitus and dizziness. Increasing knowledge of these poorly understood conditions has required highly trained specialists in this field which previously was not available.
The speciality is unique to the United Kingdom and a handful of other countries. It is being increasingly adopted worldwide. It is also sometimes referred to as Neuro-otology (which is different from the surgical Neurotology).
Audiovestibular Physicians specialise in the management of hearing and balance problems both in adult and paediatric (children) patients, having had extensive training in all aspects in world renowned hospitals such as Great Ormond Street and Royal National Throat, Nose & Ear Hospital.
At Harley Street Audiovestibular Clinic, we offer exclusive consultation with these London based Physicians who offer their expertise at your convenience. The diagnostic process is aided by our state of the art equipment and highly trained senior audiologists.
