House Ear Clinic


House Ear Clinic

House Ear Clinic was established in 1956 by Doctors William F. House, M.D., Howard P. House, M.D., James Sheehy, M.D. and Fred Linthicum, M.D. with a focus in practice on problems of the ear, nose and throat (ENT), otology, and otolaryngology.

Howard P. House was one of the first ear surgeons to perform the fenestration surgery, an operation to restore hearing. Pioneers in hearing sciences, House Ear Clinic physicians' surgical techniques advanced to the degree that patients with hearing loss due to otosclerosis or chronic ear infections could have their hearing restored.

Together with House Ear Institute scientists, the physicians of House Ear Clinic reduced the mortality rate for patients undergoing acoustic neuroma surgery from 40% to leass that 1% by introducing the surgical microscope. They also developed treatments for patients with vertigo due to Ménière's disease and other causes as well as developed and perfected the cochlear implant and auditory brainstem implant for patients who are totally deaf.

Today House Ear Clinic performs the most acoustic neuroma surgeries in the world and together with House Ear Institute continues to research new ways to improve hearing health.
