Cameron C. Wick, MD

Assistant Professor, Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery

Dr. Wick's clinical interests include minimally invasive endoscopic ear surgery for adults and children, hearing restoration, cochlear implants, management of chronic ear disease, tympanic membrane perforations, cholesteatoma, otosclerosis, cerebrospinal fluid leaks, Bell's palsy, facial nerve disorders, inner ear malformations, superior semicircular canal dehiscence, and ear/temporal bone malignancies. His practice also includes all lateral skull base pathology, including acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma), neurofibromatosis type-2, paraganglioma (glomus tumors), endolymphatic sac tumors, facial nerve tumors, encephaloceles, chrondrosacroma, skull base osteomyelitis, and meningiomas.  His research interests include cochlear implant outcomes and defining the role for minimally invasive transcanal endoscopic ear surgery for both chronic ear disease and lateral skull base pathology. Additional work has included reports on acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma) approaches and outcomes, paraganglioma management, stapedectomy outcomes, endolymphatic sac tumors, stereotactic radiation (gamma knife) for lateral skull base pathology, cerebrospinal fluid leak management, and inner ear malformations. Dr. Wick is also interested in resident and fellow education.
