Acoustic Neuromas

Acoustic neuromas are benign tumors of the vestibular portion of the eighth cranial nerve. They often present with complaints of unilateral hearing loss, and can be treated with either surgical excision, or radiation therapy. Dr. Langer performs these surgeries with Dr. George Alexaides from the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary at Roosevelt Hospital. Dr. Langer and Alexiades have worked together for nearly four years and maintain a comprehensive program focusing on the management of these lesions. Surgical treatment is performed utilizing one of three approaches - Translabyrinthine, Retrosigmoid and Middle fossa. Each approach offers specific risks and benefit to the patient, and Drs. Alexiades and Langer perform all three, with each patient's surgery tailored to the individual.
