Episode #159

In this episode, host Dr. Ashley Agan discusses eustachian tube (ET) dilation with Dr. Dennis Poe, neurotologist and Professor of Otolaryngology at Harvard Medical School.

First, the surgeons describe clinically meaningful differences between adult and pediatric ETs. Then, Dr. Poe reviews workup of pediatric ET disorders. Since inflammation accounts for most ET dysfunction, controlling comorbid allergies and/or performing adenoidectomy provides relief to some patients. For patients with continued symptoms, balloon dilation – now approved for children as young as eight years of age– directly counteracts obstructive inflammation in the tube lumen. To conclude, Dr. Poe describes how to select patients for, perform, and avoid complications of balloon dilation.

In this episode, Dr. Anita Jeyakumar, pediatric ENT at Mercy Health (Youngstown, Ohio) discusses language for Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HoH) children with podcast host Dr. Gopi Shah.

First, Dr. Jeyakumar explains the difference between speech and language. She then introduces the concept of “language nutrition,” which describes social exposure to rich and varied language. Acknowledging that language fluency–spoken or visual such as American Sign Language–underlies success, she shares strategies to foster these skills in Deaf and HoH children. Dr. Jeyakumar describes resources that support these patients, including early intervention services for children under age three and school-based resources for older children. She reviews assistive technologies including hearing aids, cochlear implants, and closed captioning. To conclude, she urges physician advocacy to better support the needs of Deaf and HoH children.

In this episode, Dr. Gerard Gianoli of The Ear & Balance Institute (Covington, Louisiana), joins host Dr. Ashley Agan to discuss his experience with the third-party-free practice model.

First, Dr. Gianoli describes how his work treating vestibular disorders spurred his interest in the third-party-free practice model, where patients pay upfront for services, then submit insurance claims for reimbursement as appropriate. Dr. Gianoli walks listeners through his practice’s transition, focusing on referral patterns and patient concerns. Then, the surgeons speak to the model’s advantages, including reduced rates of physician burnout, higher-value patient care, and reduced administrative burden. Looking ahead, Dr. Gianoli assesses the role of third-party-free practices in the U.S. healthcare landscape. Finally, the episode wraps with a discussion of Dr. Gianoli’s recent book on Third Mobile Window Syndrome.
