When Moises Arriaga trained as a physician at Brown University Medical School, he was struck by what could be done to restore a patient’s hearing and balance. That’s why he decided to make otology – the study of the inner workings of the ear – his life’s work. As a neurotologist, Dr.Arriaga is trained as both an otologic neurosurgeon (neurotology) and head and neck surgeon. This dual specialization makes him imminently qualified to diagnose and treat conditions that affect a person’s hearing and balance. He is listed as a recognized provider by the Acoustic Neuroma Association and is listed in the 2013 database of Best Doctors in America®.

“The biggest misconception is that hearing loss and dizziness are natural parts of aging. They are not,” insists Dr. Arriaga. “At the Culicchia Neurological Balance and Hearing Center, we use every diagnostic tool available to pinpoint the cause of a patient’s hearing or balance loss and offer the full gamut of solutions from medical treatment, rehabilitation, surgery, implants and hearing devices.”
Because of the depth of the Culicchia Clinic’s neurological and neurosurgical staff, Dr. Arriaga is able to rely on a vast unique, in-house multidisciplinary approach to treatment utilizing neurotology, neurology, audiology, vestibular therapies and neurosurgery as needed.

Dr. Arriaga says breakthroughs in diagnostic technology are very encouraging for patients suffering from complex, brain-related dizziness and balance issues. The use of cochlear implants, implantable hearing aid and other therapies are also effective in restoring hearing loss.
