Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tucci As a board-certified otologist/neurotologist I am specially trained to care for adults and children with ear and hearing disorders and inner ear causes of dizziness. Some of my most rewarding work is in restoring hearing. As director of Dukes cochlear implant program I use cochlear implants and other surgical procedures to restore hearing in people with tumors and ear infections. My interest in hearing started when I worked as an audiologist before medical school. After joining Duke I co-founded the Duke Hearing Center where we conduct research to one day eliminate deafness and hearing impairments. I live in Durham with my husband and three teenage children who keep me very busy when I am not at the hospital. I am fortunate to work with a team of physicians nurses audiologists and other providers who provide our patients with personalized care. We look forward to meeting you.
