Background

Dr. John Carey is a Professor and Chief of the Division of Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  Dr. Carey specializes in the health and diseases of the inner ear that affect both balance and hearing mechanisms.  As a clinician, Dr. Carey is a national expert in superior canal dehiscence syndrome, Menière’s disease, vestibular migraine, and other causes of vertigo.  As a researcher, his interests include the normal vestibular reflexes and how they change with age, novel intratympanic treatments (i.e., middle ear injections) for conditions like Menière’s disease and sudden hearing loss, and the mechanisms of vestibular migraine.  He has a particular interest in superior canal dehiscence syndrome, and, with Dr. Lloyd Minor, he helped develop the operation to repair the superior canal using image-guided surgery.  Dr. Carey has been funded by the National Institutes of Health – National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders to study inner ear balance function in Menière’s disease and steroid treatment of sudden hearing loss.  He has authored or co-authored over 100 peer-reviewed publications, 10 book chapters, and three invited reviews.
