An acoustic neuroma is a noncancerous ear tumor that grows slowly within the inner ear. An acoustic neuroma begins to press on surrounding nerves and tissues as it grows, impacting balance and hearing abilities. If left untreated, an acoustic neuroma tumor can grow enough to put pressure on parts of the brain, which can become life-threatening. Texas ENT Specialists treat and remove acoustic neuromas to relieve your pain and achieve wellness, restoring your quality of life.
Recovery After Acoustic Neuroma Surgery
Patients will need to stay in the hospital for several days to recover under observation after acoustic neuroma surgery. Once patients return home, they will need two weeks of downtime to rest and recuperate, after which the sutures and staples will be removed. Patients will return to work and continue their usual activities and exercise after 4-6 weeks.
