Patient Care

Acoustic neuromas impact quality of life
Although benign, acoustic neuromas can impact patients' quality of life significantly. Common symptoms include unilateral hearing loss and tinnitus. Mayo Clinic specialists offer a range of individualized treatment options, including Gamma Knife radiosurgery.

IOM reduces risk of patient injury during surgery
In Mayo Clinic's team-based practice, intraoperative monitoring (IOM) to measure neural function and integrity is performed by highly trained technicians and monitored by a neurophysiologist on-site. Standard protocols help ensure uniform procedures to maintain quality control.

Research

New therapies aid patients with difficult-to-treat epilepsy
Researchers employ a wide range of neurostimulation devices — including deep brain, cortical and hippocampal stimulation — in an effort to individualize treatment for patients who haven't responded to medication.
