An acoustic neuroma is a benign tumor of the eighth cranial nerve - the vestibulo-cochlear nerve - in the posterior fossa. It manifests itself with sensorineural hearing loss, dizziness and tinnitus. At the Cranial Base Surgery Program, a team of neurotologists and neurosurgeons from Cedars-Sinai's Department of Neurosurgery and the House Ear Clinic in Los Angeles, provide state-of-the-art microsurgical treatment.
When indicated, the most advanced treatments using stereotactic radiosurgery, including fractionated radiosurgery, are also available.
