Acoustic Neuromas

The Vanderbilt Skull Base Center treats acoustic neuromas, which are slow-growing benign tumors located on the balance nerve to the inner ear to the brain. They can cause hearing loss, imbalance, ringing in the ear, and/or weakness or numbness in your facial nerves. The expert treatment team you’ll have at Vanderbilt consistently performs more procedures than all other Tennessee hospitals combined. Our center is one of the few acoustic neuroma treatment centers in the United States.
