Looking for experienced doctors in Florida
« on: June 09, 2019, 11:39:02 pm »
I live in Sarasota Florida and was recently diagnosed with a 2.3 cm acoustic neuroma. My hearing is diminished in my right ear, I have LOUD tinnitus and a feeling of fullness. First doctor said I had to have surgery in the next few months and not to wait six months because the tumor is pressing on my brain stem. He also said gamma knife wasn’t an option because of true brain stem issue and because it was too late. Second neurosurgeon said gamma knife might be an option, but I am not in favor of keeping the tumor in my head and waiting to see how it reacts to the radiation. Right now I am about 90% decided on surgery. Consequently I am looking for recommendations for an highly qualified, very experienced AN neurosurgeon and neurotologist. I am also interested in someone who uses endoscopy in addition to microscopy. I am willing (and able) to go out of state if necessary, but I thought I should investigate the home teams first.
Thanks for any help you all can give.
