physicians in Maryland
« on: January 19, 2008, 09:51:39 am »
Hi,
I am newly diagnosed and looking into the surgery option.  I met with one MD at Johns Hopkins, have another consult with someone at University of Maryland Medical Center.  I am also a healthcare professional and know that these are both fine institutions, but I haven't heard mention of either place.  I can't afford to travel cross county for treatment.  Just wondering if anyone out there has any insight to MDs in my area.  Also, are there any others docs performing edoscopically on the East Coast?  Everyone had been a wealth of knowledge and encouragement.

If it is Dr. Eisenman at the University of MD. Medical Center, you are in very good hands. I'm / was bilateral.........in November I had the left side AN removed and 8 days later had bone decompression done on the right side. Both were via the middle fossa approach, minimum left side facial issues that went away in about a week after the first surgery, no issues on the right side. I personally know someone else who had the middle fossa approach done by Dr. Eisenman and she came away with all of her hearing being preserved, I can't thank him enough.

Dr. Eisenman - University of Maryland Medical Center
