After a five-year residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) he completed a fellowship in Otologic/Neurotologic and Skull Base. At HFHS, he led skull base surgery, wellness and integrative medicine and secured millions of dollars in philanthropy to build the first Center for Integrative Medicine, the first organic hydroponic green house to grow herbs and greenery for patients and employees and he was one of the lead architects for the new 370 million dollar hospital based upon the concepts of wellness. Seidman was recruited in 2016 to be the Director of Otologic/Neurotologic Surgery and the Medical Director of Wellness for FHCH and Professor of Oto-HNS for University of Central Florida.

Seidman is an active scientist and has extramural funding from the National Institute of Health and other major institutions to study Maintenance of Certification and Licensure, hearing loss and NIHL. He is considered an expert on the molecular basis of ageing, noise induced hearing loss, otologic/neurotologic-skull base surgery, all aspects of ear, nose, throat, head and neck surgery, tinnitus, herbal therapies, nutrition/antioxidants and their relationship to health, sports and aging and complementary/integrative medicine. He has mentored more than 250 high school, medical students, residents, post-docs and junior colleagues over the past 30 years.

Seidman lectures internationally on such topics; has more than 130 publications; 25 book chapters, a book published by Time Warner “Save Your Hearing Now” and another book “Complementary and Integrative Therapies for ENT Disorders”. He has received numerous awards including being honored as one of the top Doctors in the USA since 1996 and was honored by the AAO-HNS with the Clinical Practitioner Excellence Award (given to one Otolaryngologist each year).
