Vestibular schwannomas, also called acoustic neuromas, are slow-growing benign nerve tumors located near the brainstem. They can cause ringing in the ear, hearing loss, and disturbances in balance. Surgical removal of these tumors, by an experienced neurosurgeon, can provide a cure.
In a paper and accompanying video published in Neurosurgical Focus, a supplement to the Journal of Neurosurgery, Dr. Sheth and his colleagues explain and demonstrate a specific microsurgical method called the suboccipital approach that is done through the back of the skull.
