Tina Huang

Assistant Professor


I focus on treating hearing loss in both kids and adults including placement of cochlear implants, bone anchored hearing aids and hearing prostheses. I also treat patients with tumors of the lateral skull base such as acoustic neuromas/vestibular schwannomas, glomus tumors and meningiomas.
