Dr. Whitley provides his patients with access to cutting-edge medical innovation and continually furthers his training. He is one of the most experienced endoscopic ear surgeons in the Atlanta area and performed the first exoscopic pediatric cochlear implant in Atlanta. While at Harvard, he learned advanced minimally invasive endoscopic ear procedures such as endoscopic tympanoplasty, which often allows him to repair holes in the eardrum without any external incisions or scars. Most of his ear practice now focuses on minimally invasive approaches to cholesteatoma and repairing tympanic membrane perforations. These innovations result in less pain, faster healing, and almost always: no scar! He also has an interest in pediatric sinusitis and septoplasty.
