Steven D. Rauch, M.D.
Professor of Otology and Laryngology, Harvard Medical School
I am a physician-scientist specializing in otology. My clinical practice is heavily weighted toward medical otology and balance disorders. I have particular interest and expertise in care of patients with combined disorders of hearing and balance, such as Meniere’s disease, autoimmune inner ear disease, and sudden deafness. My research activities are clinical and focus on these same conditions. I am Principal Investigator and Study Chair of an NIH-funded multicenter clinical trial of steroid therapy for sudden sensorineural hearing loss. I am a site Principal Investigator for the NIH-funded CHEER otolaryngology research network. I am directing studies of vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) in diagnosis of Meniere’s disease, and collaborating in development of equipment for ambulatory vestibular monitoring.
