About Me

Recognized as a leading ear surgeon in the New York metropolitan area, Dr. Kwartler performed New Jersey's first cochlear implant in a child in 1993. He is an advocate for adults and children who are hard of hearing and he supports hearing testing for newborns.

A sought-after speaker, Dr. Kwartler has delivered local, national, and international invited presentations and taught courses concerning acoustic neuroma surgery, age-related hearing loss, hearing loss prevention, hearing rehabilitation, and the latest surgical treatments for profoundly deaf children and adults. He serves on international panels that evaluate the latest implantable and semi-implantable hearing devices. He also is integral in helping develop novel medical and surgical treatments for common ear problems.

He has been listed in Castle Connolly's "Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area" and Castle Connolly's "America's Top Doctors." Dr. Kwartler's Castle Connolly listings are reprinted in Inside Jersey and US News and World Report.
