His work on the ethics of cochlear implants in deaf infants was awarded the New York League for the Hard of Hearing’s Fowler Award and is the standard in the field. Dr. Balkany was among the first to describe preservation of residual neural function with cochlear implants, use of electrical evoked potentials through a cochlear implant, neurotrophic effects of electrical stimulation on the dorsal cochlear nucleus, bilateral cochlear implantation, and endoscopic surgery of the cochlea.
Dr. Balkany’s research has been supported by numerous NIH and industrial grants..
He has received the 1996 Teaching Award of the School of Medicine, the Honor Award and Distinguished Service Award of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, the U.M. Provost’s Award for Scholarly Activity, the President’s Honor Award of the American Neurotology Society, election to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Hall of Fame, and the Barany Society (Uppsala, Sweden) Hallpike-Nylen Prize for Clinical Research (lifetime). He has been guest of honor at national otolaryngology congresses in England, Ireland, Israel, Taiwan, Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Turkey and Argentina and visiting professor at more than 20 other academic institutions. Dr. Balkany was honored by the Prime Minister of the State of Israel for implementing their first cochlear implant programs. He has been a member of the editorial boards of the major peer review journals in Otolaryngology, both in the U.S. and Europe. This year he will receive the highest honor of the American Academy of Otolaryngology, The President’s Award.
Dr. Balkany and his wife Diane recently celebrated their 38th anniversary. They have two amazing children, Jourdan and Sarah.

Telischi sits on the editorial board or is manuscript reviewer for most of the major peer-review journals in the specialty.
Telischi received the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery’s Honor Award for contributions in teaching instructional courses. He has written Board Examination questions and prepared educational materials for the Academy. He holds a patent for a novel ear probe for measuring the function of and treating the cochlea.
Telischi’s research (as principle or co-investigator) has been funded by the National Institutes of Health Deafness and Communications Disorders section, Deafness Research Foundation, University of Miami, and medical device (including cochlear implant) companies. His research interests are in Otology and Neurotology, sensorineural hearing losses, cochlear function, pre-cochlear implant electrically-evoked auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing, skull base tumors, imlantable hearing devices (implantable middle ear hearing device and Bone Anchored Hearing Aid), otoacoustic emissions, hearing testing interoperatively, facial nerve disorders and endoscopic techniques in otologic surgery.
Simon I. Angeli, M.D. is Associate Professor of Otolaryngology. He is a graduate of the Universidad Central De Venezuela, residency training at the University of Iowa, and Neurotological Skull Base fellowship at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles. His clinical interests are in otology, neurotology, dizziness and balance disorders, facial nerve disorders and cochlear implants.
Angeli directs the Cochlear Implant Surgery Workshop for Latin-American surgeons which is held annually at The Ear Institute’s Microsurgery Training Center. He has been guest of honor at several International meetings in Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil and Uruguay. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, American Board of Otolaryngology, and the Collegium Oto-Rhino-Laryngologicum A.S. His research interests are in genetic hearing loss, effect of gene mutations on cochlear implant performance, and dizziness.
Adrien A. Eshraghi, M.D. is Associate Professor of Otolaryngology. He
is a graduate of the University of Paris with a Master’s Degree
in Computer Science-Modelization, and a Doctoral Study (DEA) in Surgical
Science. He graduated from University of Paris-Pitie Salpetriere School

He is also one of the cochlear implant surgeons and the Medical Director of Miami Veteran Administration Cochlear Implant program. This program is the main Veterans Administration Cochlear Implant program of the VISEN 8 with patients referred for cochlear implant evaluation and surgical implantation from all Sunshine Health Network including Florida, Keys and Puerto Rico. Currently more than 25 patients are enrolled in audiologic follow up after surgery by the Audiology Service at Miami VAMC under supervision of Saralyn Glod (Ph.D. in Audiology), the Audiological Director of the Miami VA Administration Cochlear Implant programs.
