Have you tried Dr. Mangham at the Seattle Ear Clinic? His website:  http://www.seattleear.com/

Dr. Mangham did my surgery in 92, was sent to him for an AN turned out to be a Facial Neuroma.  Thankfully he did the surgery as my insurance co. told me to go with someone in the system that wasn't qualified to do my surgery.  Dr. Mangham got everyone involved from hospital to his assistant to agree to take whatever the insurance company would pay so he could do the surgery.  I didn't have any complications, the only problems I have are because of the surgery not because of the way he did the surgery.  If you have questions feel free to ask.  My post is short because I just spent almost 2 hours shoveling snow and I'm beat.  Jill
Facial Nerve Neuroma removed 6/15/92 by Dr. Charles Mangham, Seattle Ear Clinic. Deaf/left ear, left eye doesn't water.

I agree with the above posts regarding Dr. Charles Mangham.  He is excellent, with experience.  He's one of those Doctor's that has seen it all and has probably done it all.  I had a ton of questions for him and he always answered my questions.  I know that Dr. Mangham went the extra mile for my husband.  Years later i still remain thankful that Dr. Mangham was a part of our lives when we needed him most.

Additional Doctors to consider

Dr. Sandra Vermeulen.  Dr Vermeulen would be the Doctor to see for the radiation option.    Dr. Vermeulen is currently co director of the CK clinic in Seattle, but she is  extremely knowledgable in all areas of radiation treatment.  In fact she's a board member of IRSA.  A google search should provide a phone number.  If i needed radiation treatment for any medical reason, she'd be the one I'd see first.

Other Doctors in the Seattle area

Dr Douglas Backous of Virginia Mason

Dr James Rasis   Dr Rasis, was nearing retirement, or at least talking about it, He was located in the Heath Building next to Swedish.

Sorry I'm not as familiar with the Doctor's at the U of W and have been out of the loop for the past couple of years

Best to you

Had recent surgery for a 4.5 tumor on Monday March 6, 2017 with Dr. Manuel Ferrera.   He was able to completely remove the tumor and no facial paralysis.   Please look into him for surgery,  he is at the UWMC in Seattle.
