Pulsatile tinnitus is a complex disorder and should be addressed at major medical centers with experts experienced in identifying and treating it. Failure to establish a correct diagnosis may have negative consequences, because a potentially life-threatening underlying disorder may be present.
At Weill Cornell Medicine Neurological Surgery, patients may be evaluated for pulsatile tinnitus by a number of specialists; patients with confirmed or suspected cases of venous sinus stenosis are usually referred to Dr. Boddu. Visit the Pulsatile Tinnitus Program page for more information about our multidisciplinary approach to evaluating and treating pulsatile tinnitus.
