Hi!

 I have been treated twice in Denver at St. Joe's.  I had my first AN surgery (de-bulking) in 2007 followed by GK at St. Anthony's a few months later.  Unfortunately, I had a recurrence (growth back to full 3cm size) in 2009 and into St. Joe's again for surgery (de-bulking) followed by Trilogy radiation a few months after that.  My Neurologist is Dr. Saul Schwarz, Neurotologist is Dr. David Nosan and Radiation Oncologist is Dr. Mark Chidel.  Great team of guys and I still have full facial nerve function!

Type "Colorado" in the search box and you'll find a few threads that you might find helpful.
