About the offer

Acoustic neuroma is a non-cancerous tumor that may need to be removed if it is large or cause problems like hearing loss, ataxia, dizziness, etc. The surgery eliminates the lump without damaging the hearing or facial nerves. There are three ways to remove an acoustic neuroma through surgery: retrosigmoid, translabyrinthine, and middle fossa approaches. Each method differs in where the cut is made and how it affects hearing. The treatment team determines the best way to help each patient and uses advanced monitoring techniques during surgery to keep the brain as safe as possible. As a result, surgery for an acoustic neuroma works successfully for 90% of the patients. It is essential to know that each treatment has risks and benefits and that the best approach depends on the case. Patients and doctors work together to determine the best course of action. Patients undergo several exams, lab tests, and diagnostic procedures. Vestibular schwannoma takes 4 to 6 hours and requires general anesthesia and an inpatient stay. The package includes the following:Getting the patient ready for surgery. Removing the acoustic neuroma. Caring for the patient after surgery. Treating the symptoms.
