Private Chiropodist/Podiatrists providing Acoustic Neuroma treatment

The diagnosis of acoustic neuroma can be confirmed by hearing tests and imaging modalities like the MRI and CT scans. It is advisable to take the collaborative opinions of a neurologist, an audiologist, an ENT surgeon and an oncologist - together to decide the treatment of acoustic neuroma. Apart from regular monitoring of the tumour, the key treatment modalities are radiation and surgery. The tumour can be effectively removed by surgical resection. Radiotherapy can be used to shrink tumour preoperatively and also as a follow-up treatment post-operatively. There are two types of radiation modalities available, namely stereotactic radiotherapy and stereotactic radio surgery. Both these modalities differ in their dose intensity. The treatment should be ideally decided upon, after discussion between the doctor and the patient. It also may depend upon the health status and the age of the patient.
