California Head & Neck Specialists
California Head & Neck Specialists is dedicated to providing full-service care throughout La Jolla, Carlsbad, Murrieta and the surrounding areas. Our team of highly specialized physicians and audiologists work together using the latest advances in diagnostic and therapeutic technology to provide you with the best possible outcomes. Below are descriptions of some of our services.
We offer a variety of otology and audiology services. Some otologic conditions we treat include surfer’s ear, ear infections, Meniere’s disease, dizziness, vertigo and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Our audiology office works with you to diagnose hearing loss with comprehensive exams, and to treat hearing loss with hearing aids or implantable devices. We also provide custom earmolds to preserve and protect your hearing.
Our expert surgeons treat conditions of the head and neck. Some of these include skull base surgery, acoustic neuroma (CPA) tumor removal, glomus tumor removal, facial paralysis and temporal bone reconstructive surgery for fracture or trauma. We also treat neurotology disorders, such as autoimmune inner ear disease, to get to the root cause of your hearing loss, not just the symptoms.
Throat conditions we specialize in include voice and swallowing disorders. We treat hoarseness in voice by evaluating symptoms to find the cause, diagnosing, developing a treatment plan and educating about prevention. We also help patients experiencing pain or inability to swallow by identifying the cause of the swallowing disorder and providing rehabilitation services.
Our innovative approach to treating sinus infections and allergies not only relieves symptoms, but can potentially eliminate the condition itself. We perform balloon sinuplasty, a non-invasive procedure, to reshape the sinuses to allow proper drainage. For allergy, we administer immunotherapy to help your body build a tolerance for certain allergens.
