Nov 14, 2017 · Anyone else diagnosed with acoustic neuroma, a benign brain tumor? in Brain Tumor

I agree totally. My tumor is in cerebello pontine angle along foramen jugulare with partial growth in sinus sigmoideus. Not possible to get it all out without loosing quality of life. My Drs gave me an option to have it embolized to shrink and stop growth & stabilize . That was 5 years ago it worked shrunk 20% and stabile last 5 years no new growth dr thinks it died due no blood. Praying he is right. I also so grateful not to have had cranial surgery. My quality of life is fairly good, deaf in right ear and earlier balance issues which got better with time but I have learned to live with this and my yearly mri. Every good mri is a blessing and another good year to enjoy my life.

I had two questions, the second was if you have a interventional neuro radiologist who is experienced doing embolization as a stand alone treatment? Or do you not do this. I do understand that more often embolization is used as a pre treatment for vascular brain tumors before surgery. My question does Mayo have a interventional neuro radiologist with experience doing embolization of tumors that are not options for surgery or radiation? If so how much experience does he/she have with this? Thank You.

My Question was not answered. I really would like to know if Mayo Clinic does have a Interventional Neuro Radiologist that has experience with brain tumor embolization as a stand alone treatment and if so the name of the Dr and how many procedures of this type he does per year. Can some one answer this question for me? THank You!
