Dizziness, Balance & Tinnitus
Dizziness, vertigo, and balance problems are common complaints in clinical practice. These symptoms can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life and overall safety. Over 90 million Americans, age 17 years and older, have experienced a dizziness or balance problem. Twenty million Americans visit the emergency room each year for fall-related injuries, with balance-related falls accounting for more than half of the accidental deaths in the elderly. According to the National Institute of Health, 90% of all causes of dizziness can be identified by a thorough evaluation.
Dr. Zhang serves as an Attending Neurologist and Director of the Dizziness and Balance Center at DENT. His patient focus is on balance disorders, dizziness/vertigo, sleep medicine, and epilepsy as well as general neurology
Our team will fully evaluate each patient to determine the need for any further related testing. Using state-of-the-art equipment, the center provides a full battery of vestibular, or balance, evaluations including audiometric hearing tests; inner ear function tests such as Videonystagmography (VNG), Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) and Rotary Chair; as well as Computerized Dynamic Posturography, a method of quantifying balance. New to the dizziness and balance center the newly developed Tinnitus Clinic includes sound therapy. The center also has trained professionals offering on-site vestibular therapy and rehabilitation.
