  • Experience. Each year, Mayo Clinic doctors diagnose and treat more than 600 people for acoustic neuromas.
  • Team approach. Mayo Clinic ear, nose and throat and hearing surgeons (neurotologists), neurologists, and neurosurgeons work with doctors trained in brain and nervous system tumor treatment (neuro-oncologists), radiation therapy (radiation oncologists), imaging (radiologists), and other areas to evaluate and treat your condition. Hearing specialists (audiologists) also will be involved in your care.
  • Expertise. Mayo Clinic doctors treat acoustic neuromas with several approaches, including observation; stereotactic radiosurgery, hearing preservation surgery, and nonhearing preservation surgery, a surgery performed when the tumor has already permanently damaged most of the hearing in the affected ear. Nearly 400 stereotactic radiosurgeries are performed annually at Mayo Clinic.
  • Research. Mayo Clinic doctors conduct research studying new or improved treatments for acoustic neuroma and other neurological conditions.
