Dr. Lori Guillot
For Immediate Release
June 4, 2020 (Atlanta, Georgia). On Friday, May 29, 2020, Board Certified, Pediatric Otolaryngologist, and Head and Neck Surgeon, Dr. Lori Guillot, became the first surgeon in Georgia to implant the newest bone conduction technology, the Cochlear Osia System, for a patient at Pediatric ENT of Atlanta.
This implantable bone conduction technology uses a magnet and the piezoelectric effect to generate vibrations that a working cochlea (hearing organ) can use to send sounds to the brain. Since the vibrations are generated at the site of the implant below the skin, no sound energy is lost as it passes over the skin and hair.
Dr. Guillot is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, Fellow, and licensed by the Georgia Composite State Board of Medicine. She completed a fellowship at the Division of Otolaryngology, Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC, her residency at the Department of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama, and obtained her Doctor of Medicine, at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana. She holds a Master of Science degree from the Department of Pharmacology, Tulane Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, Louisiana, and a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, with a minor in French, from the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
