We are very excited to launch our 2016 Spring Webinar Series by inviting ANA members to participate in a live webinar.  Our topics are designed to cover key areas of interest relevant to AN patients, family and friends with plenty of time for questions and answers.
Hearing preservation is an important goal for patients with an acoustic neuroma. During this webinar, we will discuss the use of the Middle Fossa approach as it relates to hearing preservation and recovery.  We will cover when it is the most appropriate treatment choice and what options it offers the patient. While all treatment options carry a risk of hearing loss, this approach affords the highest chance of hearing preservation in appropriate cases.
Whether you are newly diagnosed or years post-op, please plan to join us for this very informative session.
