Conditions

Acoustic Neuroma

Acoustic neuroma (also called vestibular schwannoma, acoustic neurinoma, or acoustic neurilemoma) is a benign slow growing tumor that forms in the inner ear. The noncancerous growths occur when the body produces an excessive amount of Schwann cells, which normally surround nerves to form a protective and insulating layer. Acoustic neuromas form around the nerves that assist with balance and hearing and can cause patients to have difficulty in these areas.

Therefore, it is desirable to treat brain tumors by using the least invasive means possible.
