Why Choose Florida Hospital?
An acoustic neuroma is a tumor that grows in the inner ear and presses on the nerves that affect hearing and balance. Also called vestibular schwannoma, it occurs rarely. The tumor is not cancerous, but may become large enough to cause permanent damage and to expand and compress other nerves and critical areas of the brain. The nationally recognized surgeons at the Florida Hospital Neuroscience Institute encourage people experiencing any symptoms associated with acoustic neuroma to seek immediate medical attention as early diagnosis creates the best opportunity for successful treatment. These physicians, along with a highly trained staff, combine a multidisciplinary approach to design a treatment plan that matches a patient’s unique healthcare need, delivered with the expertise, the most advanced technology and compassion.
