About

Bio

I have a PhD in Immunology. My strengths are are in the inflammatory process in upper respiratory tract infectious diseases. I am also knowledgeable in ear and sinus inflammation and most importantly all diseases involving the inner ear, notably sudden deafness, progressive deafness, noise induced hearing loss and vertigo caused by labyrinthine diseases. Tonsillitis and indications for surgery of recurrent tonsillitis are subjects that I can discuss.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

That answer was not in relation to the actual question. Need info about “iRaise” not traditional sinus lifts. This is a new procedure with limited information on-line.

That is very helpful info; thank you! It makes sense that it's caused by stress. The weekend was stressful at work. Thankfully the twitching stopped.
