Otology expert witnesses may be called in for cases involving various medical issues, as otology refers to the study and treatment of ear-related conditions. Otology expert consulting may provide valuable insight for cases involving such areas as otolaryngology, ear and skull base disorders, head and neck surgery, neurotology, skull base surgery, medical examinations, and other medical issues and procedures, as each may become the focus of potential litigation.
Otology experts may have experience with performing various types of surgeries, since several types of surgical procedures are utilized as a means of treating conditions involving the ear, nose, and throat (ENT). Such procedures as head and neck surgery, neurosurgery, facial surgery, laser surgery, nose surgery, plastic surgery, and reconstructive surgery may each be involved with an otology lawsuit.
Since otology is concerned with each aspect of the ear, many otology experts have a background working with hearing loss, audiology, chronic ear disease, acoustic neuroma, cochlear implants, and other related issues. Like other cases pertaining to the medical industry, however, otology expert witnesses may be called upon to provide an expert opinion in the event of medical malpractice, whether it concerns a faulty medical device, inner ear damage, unforeseen side effects, prescribing the wrong medication, patient neglect, or a problem with health insurance, as well as other possible issues.
