Can anyone recommend a good doctor in the NYC / NJ area, preferable that does laser surgery?  My son has had 2 surgeries and we fear the Cholesteatoma has returned. I can only find the doctor in the UK that does KTP laser surgery recommended on this board.

Thank you,

    Hi Bill I had a very large chloesteatoma in my left ear that had started to grow into my brain and even under my tongue the doctors name was Jennifer tirino she is in Atlanta as far as I'm concerned she is the best. North Fulton hospital is were she practices. It's closer than the UK.

    My son has a follow up with his surgeon the week after next. I will ask him if he knows anyone up north.

    We are in the Florida Panhandle and are blessed to have Dr. Horlbeck. He is very meticulous. Four hours on the table with no regrowth. My son had a radical mastoidectomy CWD 3 years ago.

    My husband went through 2 surgeries and has exteriorized ctoma.

      I lived in Atlanta at the time of my surgery. I am currently in the Tampa area. She did a great job with me and she cares about her patients that's a rare quality today.
