AN Surgeons/Doctors in Boston area, Conn/NY area
« on: November 02, 2020, 11:53:04 am »
Looking for a AN surgeon in the greater Boston Area for consult and also considering Yale in CN. Currently, watching and waiting but ENT says I should start talking to surgeons. I find the Boston Area very difficult to get care in. After submitting MRIs and numerous paperwork Brigham's won't even return a call. Anyone have luck with Beth Israel? Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
Lee

Back in 2012 when I was researching surgeons, alot of people in Boston used Barker and Mckenna.  Good luck!!
Dx 2.6 cm Nov 2012, 35% hearing loss.  Grew to 3.5 cm Oct 2013.  Pre-op total hearing loss, left side tongue numb.  Translab Nov 2013 House Clinic.  Post-op no permanent facial or other issues.  Tongue much improved.  Great result!!

I would highly recommend Dr. Carl Heilman at Tufts.
Diagnosed with 1.3 x 1.2 x 1.3 mm right side AN – September 2013; Gamma Knife at UPMC July 2014; Retrosigmoid surgery at Tufts Medical Center June 2018 to remove 2.0 x 1.8 mm tumor
