Doctors Who Treat Acoustic Neuromas

Although a schwannoma may be suspected or even tentatively diagnosed by a primary care physician, an acoustic neuroma should only be treated by an experienced neurosurgeon at a major medical center. Within neurosurgery, there are sub-specialists whose expertise in treating acoustic neuromas and other skull base conditions is unparalleled:

A neurosurgeon associated with a Skull Base Surgery Program is best qualified to treat an acoustic neuroma surgically.  Neurosurgery is a demanding practice that requires the most skilled surgeons with the most extensive experience along with compassion and empathy for people. The neurosurgeons at the Weill Cornell Brain and Spine Center’s Skull Base Surgery Program have an international reputation for their expertise.

Neurosurgeons who specialize in stereotactic radiosurgery have advanced training in the use of advanced stereotactic techniques and equipment, including the Gamma Knife, CyberKnife, proton beams, and linear accelerators. These noninvasive techniques are on the cutting edge of neurosurgery and require the most experienced surgeons with the most up-to-date training in the technology and procedures used to treat many conditions, including acoustic neuromas.

These highly trained neurosurgeons who specialize in skull base surgery are available to treat acoustic neuromas:
