Hearing Loss: Will You Miss Me When I'm Gone?

Dr. Rauch is a physician-scientist specializing in otology. His busy clinical practice at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary comprises medical and surgical disorders of hearing and balance, with particular interest in noise injury, Meniere’s disease, autoimmune inner ear disease, sudden deafness, and migraine-associate dizziness. His wide-ranging research activities are clinically-centered. They include service as principal investigator and study chair of a National Institutes of Health multicenter clinical trial of steroid therapy for sudden deafness, and director of a research team developing new diagnostic tests for Meniere’s disease. 
The breadth of Dr. Rauch’s experience in the science of hearing and the many ways in which it can be compromised by disease and trauma make him an articulate advocate for hearing health, loss prevention, and coping strategies. As an enthusiastic amateur musician and devoted audience member, he is keenly aware of the unique importance of hearing to performers, teachers, and students.
