Dr. Lorenz Lassen, MD
Neurotologists are physicians who have done a residency in otolaryngology (ENT) and then further specialize in neurological conditions of the ear and related structures. Many general otolaryngologists are trained in otology or middle ear surgery, performing surgery such as a tympanoplasty, or reconstruction of the ear drum. Otologic surgery includes treatment of conductive hearing loss by reconstructing the hearing bones, or ossicles, or by replacing the stapes bone with a stapedectomy for otosclerosis. Neurotology involves more complex surgery of the inner ear not typically performed by general otolaryngologists, such as removal of complex cholesteatoma, labyrinthectomy, surgery of the endolymphatic sac for Meniere's disease and cochlear implant surgery. As a Neurotologist, I limit my practice to neurological disorders of the ear and related structures. This includes treatment of middle ear disease as well as inner ear conditions as well as hearing and balance disorders. Conditions treated by neurotologists include: Vestibular (balance) diseases, such as Ménière's disease and vestibular neuronitis, skull base tumors, such as vestibular schwannoma (acoustic neuroma), facial nerve disorders, including facial nerve paralysis, hearing loss, tinnitus and deafness.

in Chesapeake, VA |
Very helpful and was able to fit me in! Awesome staff. Thanks!
Suffolk, VA |
My vertigo had gone on for years and after listening to him explain some relationships between migraines and vertigo, it made sense that my vertigo could be form of a migraine. It took several months of treatment but I am improving. Not cured but better. I've had vertigo off and on for over 2o years.
in Isle Of Wight, VA |
He was quick to dismiss my vertigo symptoms and insisted that I just have migraines and he handed me some copies of migraine information and showed me the door. He is awful, uncaring and quick to dismiss people. The visit to his office was a complete waste of time and money. He acted like I am a hypochondriac. Do not visit Dr. Lassen for any type of dizziness or vertigo issues. He is ready to give you his well-rehearsed diagnosis of migraine. - he and his staff have this diagnosis down pat.
