    Collapse overview
    Terence “Ted” Imbery, MD, is an otolaryngologist who specializes in otology and neurotology, the specialty of ear and hearing disorders. Dr. Imbery is passionate about treating adults and children with a wide array of ear problems. His clinical expertise includes cochlear implantation, skull base surgery (vestibular schwannoma), aural atresia and management of chronic ear disease (cholesteatoma). He also expanded his experience with additional coursework in advanced cochlear implantation techniques and radiosurgery for treatment of skull base tumors.

    In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Imbery is invested in the education of medical students and residents, taking the opportunity to teach and guide them through their career. Dr. Imbery is also an active researcher with particular interests in noise induced hearing loss, outcomes after cochlear implantation and single sided hearing loss. His medical findings have been presented at national and local meetings and published in respected peer-reviewed journals, such as Otology & Neurotology and Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, on topics spanning chronic ear disease in children with cleft palate, hearing outcomes in aural atresia repair and the safety of operative microscopes.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
