This treatment incorporates methodologies from across medical fields to bring unprecedented relief to patients suffering from Eustachian tube dysfunction.
His use of new telemedicine technologies has also allowed him to make an impact at a global scale—with humanitarian outreach programs in both Latin America and the Middle East. Since 2011, Dr. Dean has made several trips to Iraq to establish a telemedicine-based hospital system in the region. Through this hospital and his subsequent tele-fellowship program, he has been able to treat Syrian refugees and train Kurdish doctors in U.S. standards and best practices.
His progressive approach to medicine has led to a partnership with NASA to develop the future of tele-operated robotic surgery. Through this partnership, Dr. Dean is working with a team of experts to develop a robot capable of performing surgery in space. This technology could open the door for space-based surgery for lunar or Martian missions, as well as long distance tele-operations around the globe.
Otolaryngology is a medical specialty which is focused on the ears, nose, and throat. It is also called otolaryngology-head and neck surgery because specialists are trained in both medicine and surgery. An otolaryngologist is often called an ear, nose, and throat doctor, or an ENT for short.
As President and CEO of the Otorhinologic Research Institute, a non-profit organization focusing on the development of new treatments for ear, sinus and eustachian tube disorders, Dr. Dean hopes to raise the awareness of these conditions in local medical communities around the world.
In that capacity, he has taught, lectured, and led mission trips to multiple countries providing free information to doctors and necessary medical treatment to those in need. New endeavors include the development of a cochlear implant program in northern Iraq and a head and neck program in Vietnam.
When he is not teaching or treating patients, Dr. Dean can be found cooking or enjoying a good book. He also loves traveling and outdoor activities, like fishing and mountain biking.
