"Thanks to Dr. Dennis Bojrab, I have reached Medicare age. Four years ago, that prospect did not seem particularly promising. I was not the typical patient from the beginning.

I began to be concerned about my health in 2012, when I began having anomalies in my gait. I brought up my issues with my doctor in Aug 14. He referred me to a neurologist, who scheduled me for an MRI in Nov, 2014. The MRI showed a pretty large tumor pushing on my brain stem, most likely an acoustic neuroma. My doctor referred me to the Michigan Ear Institute, since no doctor locally wanted to deal with something that large.

My first appointment was with Dr. Bojrab in Jan, 2015. He had seen a lot of tumors, and categorized them as small, medium and large. He said mine was “jumbo.” I was scheduled for surgery on the first available date, which was Mar 9, 2015. I went through two surgeries in Mar and Jun, 2015, at Providence Park Hospital in Novi. There were complications precluding further surgery. I was scheduled for a “Gamma Knife” procedure at Beaumont hospital, Royal Oak in Dec, 2015. Dr. Bojrab and the Beaumont Gamma Knife team spent a couple of hours planning, dividing what was left of the tumor into 23 parts, then, in the course of 90 minutes, bombarded each part with focused, high energy radiation, at 1 mm resolution, one part at a time. It “stunted” the tumor, and it stopped growing.

I have my life back. It is now Dec, 2018. I still walk a little funny, though people are too kind to comment, but I walk without a cane and without fear of falling. I stay off of ladders. I become dizzy easily. My stamina is not what it was. But I work again, and teach again. I walk behind my lawn mower and snowblower. I drive again. I can play golf again, and walk the course when I do. I am very thankful to God, and to all of the professionals who made possible my recovery."

"Where does one begin...from my first intro as a patient to Dr. Dennis Bojrab to this day, two years later, has been outstanding.  Dr. Bojrab is kind, caring, listens, thorough., the BEST in his field! As a patient, one feels "safe" and you know immediately you are in good hands.  He goes the extra mile to ensure, you are aware of what is the outcome.  I would give he and his staff TEN (**********) Stars.  Just love that guy!"

"For an ongoing 5 years I've been dealing with an uncommon condition called 'patulous eustachian tubes.' Although some Doctors say this condition is harmless I completely disagree. This condition hindered my hobbies, social life, work, and mentality. On top of this I was exhausted going from doctor to doctor, just to be referred again to another place. When I was referred over to MEI I was hesitant but made an appointment - the best decision of my life. The staff there was very kind and I didn't have to wait long at all to get scheduled in. Dr. Babu was both very skilled and professional. He is a doctor that actually listens to you and cares about how, whatever condition you may have, is affecting your life. He is knowledgable and able to give multiple, optional solutions that are not just jumping straight into surgery! For me, I went ahead with surgery and now my condition have improved almost 100%! I could not be happier and more relieved!! I am incredibly thankful for Dr. Babu, all the nurses, and staff at Michigan Ear Institute. My life has improved greatly!! I can be my fun, social, energetic, 24 year old self again!!"

"I had horrible ear infections in my left ear ever since I was a young child. They caused my eardrum to become suction cupped to the inner ear structures. I had two sets of ear tubes placed earlier in life and they did not prevent the damage that was caused to my ear. I had seen at least three other specialists as I was having problems with ear pain I believed was caused by ear infections between the ages of 18 and 24. I met Dr. Babu who explained the suction cup phenomenon as being the cause of the pain and he believed that it was potentially disintegrating the inner ear bones. He did a procedure initially to widen my left Eustachian tube in the hopes that it may reverse some of the damage to my ear drum. It did help slightly, but this year, we decided to do a full tympanoplasty on the eardrum in the hopes that the pain I was still experiencing as well as pressure adjustments and hearing loss may be halted or reversed. He says that my ear has never looked better since he met me and I have not experienced relief from the pain/pressure issues until now. I could not be happier. I wish I would have found him sooner, as that would have saved a lot of pain and frustration. I am so thankful for Dr. Babu and his expertise!"

"I came to the Michigan Ear Institute and Dennis Bojrab, M.D. because my local ENT physician was frustrated, saying after much testing that he could only determine the cause for my total loss of hearing in one ear by postmortem exam! Instead, Dr. Bojrab confidently explained my situation - then surgically implanted the device he invented to replace bones of my inner ear that had deteriorated. Dr. Bojrab cautioned my restored hearing would eventually require me to use hearing aids about five to ten years after the surgery. It was not until last year though, fifteen years after the surgery, I returned to MEI where Audiologist Joy Wolney, Au.D., has flawlessly and pleasantly helped me transition to using state of art hearing aids. I am truly grateful for the expertise with which these MEI professionals have enabled me to hear properly for many years and for years to come. Thank you ever so much for your help in maintaining my quality of life. DP"

"I was fortunate enough to be referred to Dr. S. Babu. I am 65 years young and have been going to ear doctors for around 45 years with complaints of pressure, pain and plugged ears to no avail. Around 17 years ago my hearing in my left ear would come and go and after awhile  I could not hear out of my left ear at all, so that's been about 16 years now. I was so tired of going to doctors and telling them the whole thing over and over again.With the best intentions my family members kept making suggestions go here or try this and really I was done. Then last year I had a very bad ear infection and the young doctor who treated me said when your well you should really go see this doctor, Dr. Babu. So I tucked the card away then one day I thought ok one more try. I told my husband this is it last ear doctor. Well I was right he is my last ear Doctor because he fixed my ear. I had ear surgery and my hearing is OUTSTANDING.He repaired my ear drum and replaced a bone in my ear. On top of all that Dr. Babu is such a wonderful person he takes the time to make sure I understand and speaks to me not at me. He really is great. Thank You MEI - LM"
