Our Mission

The Acoustic Neuroma and Hearing Preservation Program at UCSF comprises a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, and scientists devoted to the care of patients with complex hearing problems. We offer a wide range of treatment options that are customized to meet the needs of each patient, including several modes of frameless and frame-based radiosurgery. Our neurosurgeons have expertise in all surgical approaches to acoustic neuroma and use cutting-edge technology to restore and preserve hearing before or after surgery. We also provide comprehensive evaluations to determine the cause and extent of hearing loss. Recent collaborations between scientists and clinicians at UCSF have yielded new insights into the genetic signals that contribute to acoustic neuroma recurrence and progression. These findings will likely pave the way for novel treatments that target specific molecular features of an individual patient’s tumor. At UCSF our mission is to provide the most comprehensive and advanced care for patients with acoustic neuromas and hearing loss, and we are continually striving to translate our scientific advances into more- effective therapies.
