Please join us for a Facebook Live event on January 16th at 7pm ET to discuss Neurofibromatosis 2 (NF2). These tumors, also known as acoustic neuromas or vestibular schwannomas, occur bilaterally (on both sides).
During this LIVE event, Dr. Gustavo Pradilla, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery and Dr. Esther Vivas, Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Emory University Medical Center will provide insights on this rare genetic disorder related to acoustic neuroma. The discussion will cover the natural history of NF2, treatment options including the role of observation as well as surgery and radiation and aural rehabilitation options including cochlear implants and auditory brainstem implants. Please come ready with questions as this will be an interactive discussion where the doctors can answer your questions as you submit them. This event is FREE and open to everyone.
