Glasscock-Shambaugh Surgery of the Ear, updated with new color graphics of surgical and diagnostic procedures in the sixth edition, retains its heritage as the classic textbook of otology and neurotology. Coverage includes scientific foundations and fundamentals, clinical evaluation and rehabilitation, and sections on the external ear, inner ear, tympanomastoid compartment, internal auditory canal/Cerebellopontine angle/petrous apex and skull-based surgery.

This edition integrates all the latest research in genetics, biotechnical advancements in laser and image-guided systems, and clinical innovations and techniques of the past 7 years. Woven throughout is an intriguing historical overview of those who pioneered the early surgical interventions from 1950 to the present and the influences on current clinical practice.

The editors of this edition – Julianna Gulya, Lloyd Minor, and Dennis Poe – are internationally renowned figures in the field of otology and neurotology. This sixth edition enormously benefits from their editorial direction, wealth of knowledge, and clinical expertise. Glasscock-Shambaugh Surgery of the Ear remains the classic text and reference of choice for otolaryngologists and neurosurgeons, and is an essential addition to the libraries of experienced surgeons, trainees, or those preparing for board exams.
