Acoustic neuroma experts

Free consultations for acoustic neuroma treatments

Whatever your choice, seek the best AN expert you can find. Between an excellent AN expert and a good doctor who is not an AN expert, the difference in outcomes can be life-changing.

The options open to AN patients are basically:

  • surgery,
  • radiation,
  • watch & wait (no treatment).

A number of specialist acoustic neuroma treatment centers are happy to review MRIs and medical histories and provide advice free of charge. This is a non-exhaustive list of such centers. If you know of others, kindly send an email to Philip and we will gladly add them to the list.
