About Justin S. Golub, MD

Justin S. Golub, MD, MS is an otologist/neurotologist, a specialist of the ear and surrounding skull base. He provides both medical and surgical treatment of common disorders as well as rare, complex conditions. One of Dr. Golub's passions is introducing cutting edge treatments to the practice of otology. He is a pioneer in endoscopic ear surgery, directing one of the few training courses in the country on this new minimally invasive technique. He is also one of the first American members of the International Working Group on Endoscopic Ear Surgery. Dr. Golub is actively engaged in clinical and translational research to improve patient care and outcomes.

Dr. Golub completed his medical training at Emory University School of Medicine, where he spent an additional year performing research in regenerative medicine at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He then pursued Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery training at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he had additional research training on an NIH T32 grant. Afterwards, he completed a two-year accredited fellowship in Otology, Neurotology, and Skull Base Surgery at the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. Finally, he obtained a masters of science in Biostatistics/Patient Oriented Research at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. A native New Yorker, Dr. Golub is excited to take care of patients at Columbia after spending nearly two decades away in school and training.

Dr. Golub's practice is focused on disorders of the ears and surrounding structures of the skull. This includes hearing loss, tympanic membrane perforations, infectious ear disease, inner ear balance problems, tumors, and skull base conditions such as vestibular schwannoma (acoustic neuroma).

He is actively involved in researching new techniques and technologies. Several areas of clinical interest include minimally invasive and endoscopic ear surgery, cochlear implants, and regenerative therapies for hearing loss. Dr. Golub directs a lab, funded in part through National Institutes of Health grants, to investigate how age-related hearing loss affects the brain. His research has appeared in the press nationally, including The New York Times and The New York Times Magazine.

He is the author of over 50 peer-reviewed publications in otolaryngology and 30 book chapters. He has taught techniques and presented his research internationally. He has also co-edited three books, including the best-selling Pasha/Golub clinical reference guide that is now in its 5th edition.

As a physician at Columbia, Dr. Golub is able to collaborate with a wide variety of renowned specialists to bring multiple areas of expertise to patient care. For ear disorders, he works with audiologists, balance therapists, neurologists, and oral surgeons. For skull base disorders, he works closely with neurosurgery, radiation oncology, neuroradiology, and medical oncology.

Dr. Golub would be excited to meet you at either of his clinical locations in Riverdale, Bronx or at the main Columbia University Irving Medical Center campus.
