On July 19, 2018, I had a translabyrinthine resection of my acoustic neuroma (~2 cm) by House Clinic physicians Drs. Slattery and Lekovic. I am 41 years old and the symptoms which led me to have an MRI and the discovery of the acoustic neuroma were hearing loss, intermittent headaches and tinnitus. Today is August 8, 2018 and I feel great! Thank goodness my worries about facial weakness, resulting from surgery, are over as I have no facial weakness! I’m very thankful for my doctors and the staff who cared for me and my well-being. Before surgery, I met with my doctors who were very patient with me, answering all my questions and addressing all my concerns. It was then that I knew that I had made the right decision choosing the House Clinic and deciding to go ahead with surgery. Thank you so much House Clinic and St. Vincent Medical Center for everything!
A very grateful patient.
