Linda, 62 – Acoustic Neuroma Radiosurgery
- Posted on: Oct 4 2016
I was frightened about having surgery to remove my brain tumor. I was told that with surgery I would likely lose hearing in my right ear and I could have facial paralysis and balance problems for the rest of my life. I thought about the possibility that something could go permanently wrong and how this would affect my children. Then I learned about Dr. Lipani and his extensive experience using Cyberknife. He explained that with radiosurgery injury to my hearing and facial nerves would be less risky than surgery. With less risk and no cutting I was sold! It turned out treatment for my tumor was very easy. I didn’t have any side effects and my quality of life never changed.
