Crianial Base Surgery Program
In the department of Neurosurgery at the UTHSCSA we provide diagnostic and treatment for the broadest range of Cranial Base Surgery Diseases.
Acoustic neuromas, also known as vestibular schwannomas, constitute approximately six percent (6%) of all brain tumors. These tumors occur in all races of people and have a very slight predilection for women over men. In the United States, approximately ten (10) people per million, per year are diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma. This translates to roughly three thousand (3,000) newly diagnosed acoustic neuromas per year in the United States based upon a population of around three hundred million.
