This includes medical and surgical treatments for disorders affecting hearing and balance, facial paralysis, management of chronic ear disease, infections and tumor growths of the skull base. In keeping with state-of-the-art care, Dr. Hodgson is also trained in implantable hearing technologies such as cochlear implants and bone anchored hearing appliances (or BAHA).
