ACOUSTIC NEUROMA PHYSICIANS
(Formerly Acoustic Neuroma Info Sources)
DISCLAIMER:The following data are presented with the hope that they will be of use to patients with recently diagnosed acoustic neuromas. No effort has been made to determine either the accuracy of the information or the quality of service offered. I am not a medically trained person and make no recommendations based on this information.
Inclusion on this list does not imply a recommendation nor does non-inclusion imply the opposite.
In general this list is based on e-mails directly from recovering patients. I will furnish you with their e-mail addresses upon request. Because of my desire to disseminate as much information as possible this list is being expanded to include AN doctors and hospitals that have come to my attention from sources other than patient e-mails. Such names will be preceded by a .
No person has used any special influence to be included hereon. E-mails from patients will be reviewed and the information possibly added later.
You should consult with medical professionals and patients who have undergone treatment before making any decisions.(End disclaimer.)
Go directly to: Hospital Listings.
Among the many things that you should consider are these:
- How many ANs has the doctor/facility done in the past year?
- Does the hospital use surgical techniques, radiation techniques, or both, and will your doctor freely evaluate both options as well as "watchful waiting"?
- In the case of microsurgery does the surgical team include one member to specifically monitor the facial nerve? Not essential but desirable.
- What is the average time for surgery or radiation and what is the average hospital stay? There are, however, many factors that affect the time it will take.
- How many doctors at the facility have, in the past year, done a sizable number of the surgeries or radiation procedures? Will your doctor be one of them?
The Sites Listed Below Will Provide Additional Helpful Information.
- Sandi Wiggins' Acoustic Neuroma Resources. This is a page of carefully researched information about nearly every aspect of acoustic neuromas.
- Acoustic Neuroma Association in Cumming,GA. This is a group of approximately 5000 members worldwide, comprised of patients,their relatives, doctors/surgeons, and others. They can supply you with information in the form of brochures and booklets and can also put you in touch with patients and chapters in your area. They may be reached byphone @ 770 205-8211 (phone) and 770 205-0239 (fax), and by e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Referral to the above site will guide you to the AN-Support listserv where you can read problems and solutions of others and post your own questions which usually bring you responses. Be forewarned. Once you join this list you may receive a lot of e-mail. There is much valuable information there and you will see many opinions expressed, sometimes quite strongly. It is up to you to sort them out and to discuss them with your doctors. There is no medical advice on the AN-Support list.
- Central Virginia Support Group. This site is no longer being updated but will remain on the internet for reference for some time. There you can read newsletters from all past meetings.
A new AN support group has been formed in the Tidewater area. The contact person is Helene Gean at 757-625-4151.
- Seattle AN Group Home PageThis carefully researched and well presented site from David Minger and the Seattle Support Group contains a wealth of AN info readily available plus links to many of the more authoritative other sites. Well worth a look.
- The House Ear Clinic and Ear Institute in Los Angeles. House is known world-wide for its work with ANs (as well as many other complex ear problems). I list it here because I know about it as it is where I went for my surgery. Their home page directs you to a lot of links dealing with ANs. The Institute is mostly concerned with research whereas the Clinic deals with surgery and other treatments. The Clinic can be reached by phone @ 213-483-9930. There are an increasing number of other hospitals competent to deal with ANs. Many of their doctors trained at House.
- Acoustic Neuromaat House. A personal narration of one patient's experience (mine) whilegoing through an AN removal at House. Just one person's observations.
- Radiation Treatments (stereotactic radiosurgery, radiotherapy). Several non-invasive methods of treatment are being used and should be evaluated when making decisions. Stereotactic radiosurgery/therapy is used to shrink or reduce growth of the tumor without use of surgery. I take no position in this document as to pro or con; however, you should know that there are such treatments available. One source of information is the Cleveland Clinic which uses the Peacock Procedure among other methods. (If you experience difficulty in getting to the right site, type in http://www.clevelandclinic.org/radonc/spec_prog/rad_surg.html). This site contains very clear explanations of the various forms ofradiation treatment. An oversimplication is that one method of treatment(Gamma Knife) uses an intensive one-shot procedure and Peacock (one form of fractionated stereotactic radiation, or FSR for short) uses lesser intensity spread over more applications.
- This really good website Brian'sAcoustic Neuroma UK Pages will lead you to a lot of good links andwill give you some perspective on ANs in the United Kingdom. It will alsolead you to BANA, the British Acoustic Neuroma Association.
- AN Archive..This link has been added with some trepidation as it has an obvious bias towards the various radiation treatments. The following statement is extracted verbatim from the Archive's constitution:
"4. In particular, recognising that many excellent resources already exist for surgical treatment of AN, to ensure that the non-surgical options are highlighted on our web site."
Having said that I will say that it is a great compilation of AN data of various kinds, assembled, created and maintained primarily by AN patientswho care. Their advisory board does not include doctors; most, but notall, of the patients contributing to this site are radiation patients, hence the bias. Give it a read; you'll be there for hours if you read it all. Then think!
- This site from the International Radiosurgial Association (IRSA) provides an explanation of Gamma Knife radiosurgery as an option for the treatment of Acoustic Neuromas up to 3 cm in size. The site also provides links to centers of excellence for Gamma Knife surgery in the U.S. and around theworld, as well as both patient and professional forums (bulletin boards) for discussion of acoustic neuroma topics.
- This document only scratches the surface as to what info is available.You will probably suffer from information overload if you try to read all of the links available; however, if reviewed rationally they may help you to make a decision.
PLEASE, PEOPLE, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH! CONSIDER THIS LIST AS YOU WOULD THE YELLOW PAGES!
- Following is a list of doctors and hospitals and others that I know work with ANs (more properly termed "vestibular schwannomas").In some cases this information is based on a single report from a "satisfied customer" but some documentation exists for each. E-mails are solicited from patients citing additional hospitals and doctors, as well as comments about those presently on the list. Please indicate if you are willing to receive e-mail from other patients. I shall add phone numbers, websites, and e-mail addresses (for professionals only) as they become available. In many cases I have fax, address, and other information available in addition to that presented here.
(Please note that in many cases the doctors mentioned are not on the staffs of the associated hospitals but have privileges there).

And, In Conclusion...There are many, many others; however, as I said earlier, consider the number of procedures made by any one hospital or doctor when making your decision as to where to go. As regards traveling away from home remember that an airplane ticket is a very small cost overall. Airplane travel shortly after surgery has not presented any problems. Hopefully your local doctors will help you with this decision.
