Dr. Sameer Sheth Demonstrates Acoustic Neuroma Surgery

Sheth_Portrait_Web213x275Columbia Neurosurgeon, Dr. Sameer Sheth is primary author* of a new paper and video published in the Journal of Neurosurgery this month: Vestibular schwannoma: suboccipital approach.

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.

You can watch a video of this procedure here, or read the abstract of the paper here or in the January 2014, Volume 36, Issue V1 Supplement of The Journal of Neurosurgery.

Learn more about Dr. Sameer Sheth on his bio page here.

This procedure is also performed by our neurosurgeon, Dr. Michael Sisti. See his bio page here.

*Co authors include: Sheth SA, Tirino JL, and Martuza RL.
