Vestibular Schwanoma is a tumour in a very sensitive part of the brain.
It requires great skill to operate in this part of the brain because of important structures present in this area close to brain stem.One of a few neurosurgeons to offer surgery for this in the region. I operated on this patient who had presented with hearing loss, facial weakness and numbness and difficulty in walking. It takes skill to not just preserve, but improve the facial nerve and hearing in this operation. No title or accolade can match a happy patient with all symptoms improved.
