bless you and good luck first of all!
i had an acoustic nueroma removed via translab approach at house clinic last month. these guys are the acoustic nueroma experts it seems. dr. slattery and dr.schwatz are my dr.'s,and they are great, they saved my life basically. they are very busy at the house clinic with AN patients, which most would agree is a good thing.
they use St. Vincent hospital, which is next door to the house clinic; my experience with the hospital staff was less than great.
i certainly recommend checking out the team at house, anyone of the surgeons will be one of the best you can find, i feel.
