Acoustic Neuroma Patient Archive ©

Welcome to our informational web site for Acoustic Neuroma (Vestibular Schwannoma) patients, dedicated to providing you with information, advice, and stories to help make informed decisions regarding your treatment options and other Acoustic Neuroma management issues.

Acoustic Neuroma is a double-edged swordOn the one hand, the expected outcome from Acoustic Neuroma treatment really depends on the choice of treatment and the experience of the team. The outcomes range from permanent disability to no complications whatsoever. A good outcome is never guaranteed; all we Acoustic Neuroma patients can do is try to increase our odds by choosing our treatment from an informed viewpoint. On the other hand, there really are NO Acoustic Neuroma specialists that can give you accurate up-to-date information for all options. You MUST see the provider of each type of treatment separately,  have each one give you their statistics and their expectations for your outcome, then make up your mind yourself.
