We are vestibular diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation experts. We specialize in successful treatment programs designed to return your patients to maximum activity levels as quickly and comfortably as possible.
Dr. Mango and his team have successfully treated more than 50,000 patients for dizziness, vertigo, balance and inner-ear disorders using proprietary, medically-advanced technology and techniques, including Advanced Vestibular Treatment® (AVT).
To date more than 90% of all Institute patients have demonstrated measurable, clinical improvement following our personalized dizziness therapy with a treatment approach far superior to traditional vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT).
AVT is our highly effective, customized therapeutic approach that treats those patients with vestibular balance system disorders. AVT is designed as a clinic-directed therapy approach. It may be complemented with an accompanying customized home-based exercise program that is patient-motivated.
Why does AVT work? AVT involves teaching the brain to correct itself. It takes full advantage of the brain’s natural plasticity and ability to restore symmetry and increase sensitivity. Our goal is to improve patients’ overall stability and motor control by enhancing the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) – a reflexive eye movement that stabilizes images on the retina during head movement. Studies show that individualized treatment is significantly more effective in resolving symptoms than commonplace treatments, such as medication or general balance exercises.
Successful treatment returns patients to maximum activity levels as quickly and comfortably as possible.
Research serves an integral role in Newport-Mesa Audiology Balance & Ear Institute’s history. It validates our ability to consistently achieve a true differential diagnosis. And new research findings, once affirmed, continue to raise our bar higher. The result? Providing the most clinically appropriate treatment possible.
Additional innovative research and case studies are ongoing.
