Dr. Luxford was born, raised, educated and still living and working within a 40-mile radius of downtown Los Angeles. His father, a chiropractor, and mother, who developed bilateral severe/profound hearing loss at an early age led him to medicine and the field of otolaryngology.
After working with House group physicians during his residency, Dr. Luxford decided to complete a fellowship in neurotology at House Clinic and Institute. He joined the group shortly thereafter, helping Dr. William House expand his cochlear implant research as a treatment for deafness in adults and children. Over the years. Dr. Luxford has had the opportunity to provide care for adults and children with a variety of problems related to hearing or balance. One of his great pleasures is seeing patients he carried into the operating room as infants to return to see him as university graduates.
