We are pleased to share about the visit of Dr. Michael Strupp, Professor, Dept of Neurology and Vertigo to Dr. Rao’s ENT Super Speciality International Hospital. Dr. Strupp is globally acclaimed for his pioneering work on vertigo with more than 350 publications in indexed journals.
We are happy to share that Dr. Strupp was very impressed with the Vertigo assessment setup at Dr. Rao’s ENT, the facilities and OT complex in the hospital and remarked that the setup is similar to a “UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL” in his country. He also mentioned that Dr. Rao’s ENT has an excellent OT setup to take up the first Vestibular Implant in India.
We are extremely excited that Dr. Strupp will be collaborating with Dr. Rao’s ENT from 2020 providing clinical and academic contributions. He would provide his professional services and conduct training programs in the fully equipped lab and academic floor available at Dr. Rao’s ENT premises.
