Dr. Seth Rosenberg provides medical candidacy evaluations and performs cochlear implant and other ear surgeries locally at Haywood Regional Medical Center. He is a native of Poughkeepsie, New York, and completed a BS in chemistry, cum laude, at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute prior to obtaining his MD at State University of New York Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse. His surgical and otolaryngology residencies were also served at SUNY. Following the completion of his internship and residency, Dr. Rosenberg spent one year of specialized study in otology and neurotology at the Ear Research Foundation in Sarasota, Florida. There he was involved in one of the first cochlear implants in Florida, and helped develop the use of LASERS for stapes surgery. Upon graduating the Fellowship, he was asked to join the staff of the University of Pennsylvania, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, as an Assistant Professor. During this time, he quickly developed new surgical techniques and a national level practice in ear and skull base surgery. He brought this technique to Sarasota in 1991. He then went on to develop ways to use endoscopes for minimally invasive ear surgery.
Since 1991, Dr. Rosenberg has collaborated with Dr. Silverstein in many productive research endeavors. He serves as Vice President and Education Director for the Ear Research Foundation, and has co-authored over 70 scientific publications. He is still a clinical assistant professor at University of Pennsylvania Medical School, Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He is also a clinical assistant professor at USF Medical School, Division of Otolaryngology.
He is excited to share his expertise with the Western Carolina community, including his high level of expertise and experience in surgically placing cochlear implants.
