Dr. Kaylie's main research interests are in hearing preservation skull base surgery. He has patented a laser Doppler probe that can measure blood flow in the inner ear and nerves during surgery for the removal of skull base tumors. This allows real-time monitoring of function that was previously not available. He is also involved in development of carbon dioxide laser tools for ear surgery.
