Stanford Acoustic Neuroma Program
The Stanford Brain Tumor Program is part of a global referral center for the diagnosis and treatment of acoustic neuromas. Treatments for acoustic neuromas include various approaches to surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), radiation therapy, or a combination of surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and radiation therapy. A type of radiation treatment developed here at Stanford, known as CyberKnife, is often used to treat acoustic neuromas. Your doctor will guide you through the options to help you decide what is best for you. We also offer an active clinical research program dedicated to broadening options for the diagnosis and treatment of acoustic neuromas.

Understanding Acoustic Neuromas
Clinical trials evaluate new approaches, devices, or medications in the treatment of acoustic neuromas. Ask your doctor or clinical trials coordinator about available trials that may be additional options for your care.
