Mayo Clinic team discussion
A team of doctors discusses peripheral nerve tumors.
Mayo Clinic is one of the highest volume neurosurgical centers in the country. Its doctors are respected for their experience diagnosing and treating peripheral nerve tumors, from the routine to the more-challenging type, such as dumbbell tumors. Each year more than 900 people with peripheral nerve tumors seek care at Mayo Clinic.
Care for people with cancerous nerve tumors is done in conjunction with Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. Mayo Clinic Cancer Center meets strict standards for a National Cancer Institute comprehensive cancer center, which recognizes scientific excellence and a multidisciplinary approach to cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Nationally recognized expertise
Mayo Clinic has earned national recognition for developing special techniques that let surgeons remove a tumor, often without damaging nerves. Its neurologists and neurosurgeons regularly contribute to medical journals and textbooks and host educational seminars for other doctors to advance peripheral nerve tumor treatment for people everywhere. In 2019 Mayo Clinic will host the international conference for a type of peripheral nerve tumor called acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma).
Mayo Clinic physicians have also served as leaders in the American Society for Peripheral Nerve, American Academy of Neurological Surgery, American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, Society of Neurological Surgeons, North American Skull Base Society and the American Board of Neurological Surgery.
