Title: Best AN surgeons in the world
Post by: Stronger on February 27, 2019, 08:38:07 am
Hi there, I am new to the forum, and need help and advice. I know this forum is largely a forum focused on treatment in the US, but I was wondering does anyone know of highly experienced AN surgeons outside the US?

The reason why I ask is because my insurance only covers treatment locations outside the US and as much as I'd love to get treated by the top top surgeons mentioned in the forums, I can't.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Check out Denmark.  I believe they have one of the only nationalized AN centers in the world and I read some good things about it.  That's about all the advice I can recommend - check it out and research a lot.

Check out INI which is in Hanover, Germany. Dr Samii is the BEST!

Hello,
I had heard about Dr. Takanori Fukushima of Duke and will see him on May 1st. I hear he's one of the best in the world and has a 60=70% hearing retention rate. Are you familiar with him?
I wish you the best,
Donna

Dr. Fukushima did my first AN surgery 11 years ago.  I had heard that he no longer operates, but consults.  Is that correct?

I have an appointment with Dr. Fukushima on Wednesday. He often sees patients in Japan, Italy, and the U.S. He's certainly retirement age and likely consults while the younger guys do the surgeries. I'll know more after May 1st. I'll give you an update. Best of luck in your search!
