About Us

Our History

The House Institute is the preeminent center for the treatment of ear disease and neurological disorders. For more than 60 years, the House Institute’s neurotologists and neurosurgeons have led the way in treating the causes of hearing, balance and skull-base disorders with cutting-edge practices and procedures.

The Los Angeles-based team’s audiological staff works in close conjunction with its physicians to provide the most advanced audiometric evaluations and treatment options to ensure that patients receive the best treatment possible.

Named for the groundbreaking work done by founder Howard P. House, M.D., the House Institute treats a variety of ear-related disorders, including Meniere’s disease, acoustic neuromas, skull-base tumors, neurofibromatosis, surfer’s ear, balance issues, chronic ear infections and much more.

Serving the communities of greater Los Angeles and Orange County with both clinical locations and hearing aid dispensaries, the House Institute also includes a 501-(c)(3) private nonprofit branch, the House Institute Foundation (formerly House Ear Institute), that has pioneered innovative research in otology, neurotology and neurosurgery.
