Nebraska specialists
« on: August 07, 2021, 01:31:52 pm »
I am wondering if anyone can recommend a physician or group that specializes in AN in the Omaha area.  On the website here, it appears there isn’t any physician in Nebraska that is a part of this association. 

Thank you for any assistance.

Not in Nebraska but the Univ of Iowa does large no of ANs.      2great neurotologists.   The current Fellow does the open and shut of the surgery.     Something to check out if desired.                                      Are there any neurotologists in Omaha?                            Cheryl R

I echo Cheryl's comment. Would be worth checking into driving to Iowa City for people who deal with this stuff all the time.
Vestibular Schwannoma 1.2 cm. Right side.
Middle fossa surgery at University of Iowa on May 9 2016.
Hearing saved.  Face is fine. Balance pretty darn good most days.
One year follow up MRI showed no tumor. 
Five year follow up showed no tumor, so I'm in the clear.

I also thought I’d add that Rush University in Chicago is a train ride away I believe. There have been patients on this forum with great results from Rush as well. I’m originally from Chicago so I remember how close Nebraska is.

Best of luck to you.
