Hello, folks. My friend has been diagnosed with acoustic neuroma. I think he will go for a surgery. I know that this is stressful for him, so I would like to help. Can anyone tell me something more about which type of surgery is better for this type of tumor? I would appreciate it.

Hi, there. When it comes to surgery, I have heard for two methods relating to acoustic neuromas. Those are radiosurgery and microsurgery. The great risk in this kind of surgery is facial nerve damage. Stereotactic surgery has many advantages over microsurgery. First of all, risk of damaging facial nerve is diminished. However, not all speak highly about radiosurgery. That is why your friend should consult thoroughly with his ENT specialist about all pros and cons. I hope everything will be all right. Bye!
