Statement about the Center

Our multidisciplinary team has worked together for over 18 years in the management of acoustic tumors. We believe in the integrated care of acoustic tumor patients, utilizing the most suitable tool(s) available. The team evaluates between 40 to 60 acoustic tumor patients a year with a cumulative experience of over 750 acoustic tumor patients. Among our innovations:
- William A. Buchheit was the first to establish neurophysiologic monitoring of the VIIth nerve during acoustic neuroma surgery.
- Development and ongoing refinement of fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy.
