Andrew A. McCall

  • Assistant Professor, Department of Otolaryngology

Current Research

Dr. McCall’s clinical focus is on the treatment of patients with otologic and neurotologic disorders. He is specifically interested in the surgical management of patients with hearing loss, chronic otitis media and associated sequelae, or skull base disorders.

Dr. McCall’s scientific focus is on understanding the manner in which somatosensory inputs from the periphery are integrated with vestibular inputs in the central nervous system. He is ultimately interested in translating insights gained from these experiments into clinical therapies for patients with vestibulopathy.
