Featured Physician

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 lateral skull base pathologies, 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, defining the role for minimally invasive transcanal endoscopic ear surgery, and the connection between hearing loss and cognitive function. He has previously served on three national committees through the Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (Hearing committee; Otology-Neurotology Education committee; Implantable Hearing Devices committee). He is an ad hoc reviewer for three well respected otolaryngology journals (Otology and Neurotology; JAMA Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery; Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery). Additional research activities include writing 10 book chapters and reports on acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma) approaches, 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 actively involved with resident and fellow education.
