From the Foreword

“It is with great pride that I introduce this book (and its companion Practical Otology for the Otolaryngologist) edited by Dr. Seilesh Babu and contributed to by many other members of the Michigan Ear Institute and their former fellows. This book reflects a 25-year experience in Clinical Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery, an experience rich in contributions in diagnosis, evaluations, electrophysiologic monitoring, and surgical technique innovations and modifications.”
