    Collapse overview
    Ted R. McRackan, M.D. recently joined the Neurotology division in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery where he is the director of the Lateral Skull Base Program. Dr. McRackan was born in Virginia and moved to Charleston to attend the College of Charleston. He received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and completed his residency at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Afterward he moved to Los Angeles, CA for a fellowship in Otology-Neurotology at the House Ear Clinic.
    Dr. McRackan’s clinical practice is focused on comprehensive management of ear, hearing, balance and skull base disorders in adults and children. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, cochlear implantation, chronic ear surgery (cholesteatoma, chronic otitis media), acoustic neuroma and other skull base lesions, otosclerosis, facial nerve disorders and tumors, endoscopic ear surgery, implantable hearing aids, and vertigo.
    Dr. McRackan has recently published a comprehensive Neurotology textbook and has written over 40 peer reviewed articles and book chapters. His research interests focus on the use of technology and outcome analysis to improve patient results in Neurotology. Dr. McRackan is a member and serves on multiple committees of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. He sees patients in downtown Charleston, Mount Pleasant, and North Charleston.
