Surgeons near Louisville, KY
« on: April 09, 2007, 08:04:57 pm »
Hi, all.

I am in touch via email with a lady in Louisville, KY who has a 4cm AN and in need of surgery fairly quickly as it is compressing the brain stem.  She is to see a Dr. Paytner in Indy.  Has anyone heard of this doctor?  She has consulted with one doctor who told her he cannot save her facial nerve and is referring her to Dr. Paytner.

Any other suggestions as to doctors near her that she should consult with?

Thanks for your help!

I expect that we are way too late to contribute on the exact question. My wife was just recently diagnosed w/ a 3 cm AN. We have met with Dr. Todd Vitaz of the Neurological Institute of Ky and an ENT named Dr. Mark Severtson, both in Louisville.

We would be happy to hear how your friend’s surgery came out. We'd also like to know who she met with in L'ville and who she eventually settled on.

Our best wishes to you and your friend!
