Have you found a specialist yet? Where are you located in Michigan? My team was Dr. Robert Daniels, ENT skull base surgeon and Dr. Bryan Figueroa, neurosurgeon. I had my surgery at Spectrum Health Blodgett Hospital in Grand Rapids. Very happy with the team and the hospital. I also had a second opinion at the University of Michigan. I highly recommend them as well. They presented me with the same plan as my team. My disclaimer: I graduated from U of M and work for Spectrum Health and I am a nurse/risk manager. My physician friends helped me to choose my surgeon. I would let it be known if I had a problem with either health system though. Good luck with your search.
