Treatable Conditions

Acoustic Neuroma
Hearing loss in one ear, ringing in the ear, dizziness and loss of balance are all the signs of an acoustic neuroma or sometimes called vestibular schwannoma.

Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM)
Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) are defects in vascular system. Vascular system includes arteries, veins and capillaries.Arteries carry blood away from the heart to other organs; veins carry blood back to the heart. Capillaries connect the arteries and veins and AVM is a snarled tangle of arteries and veins. AVM are connected to each other with no capillaries, resulting in interference in blood circulation. AVMs are more commonly found in brain and spinal cord. People suffering from Arteriovenous Malformations generally experience headache and epilepsy.

Brain Metastases
According to National Brain Tumor Foundation, each year it is estimated that more than 170,000 patients are diagnosed with brain metastases or cancer that has started somewhere in the body and spread to the brain. Brain metastases are the most common type of brain cancer.

Craniopharyngioma is a noncancerous tumor that develops at the base of the brain close to the pituitary gland (small endocrine gland). This tumor usually affects children 5 to 10 years of age, adults are also susceptible. Genders are equally likely to develop this condition.

Gliomas can be cancerous or noncancerous tumors. The true origin of gliomas is difficult to find, however it is currently believed that these tumors originate from the supporting cells/glial cells (glial cells support neurons with nutrients and oxygen) in the brain itself. Some other types of gliomas: astrocytomas, ependymomas, glioblastomas, oligoastrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas.

Meningioma is a tumor that forms on membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. The tumor that forms on three layers of membranes are called meninges. Meningioma are often slow in growth with the statistics of 90% are benign.

Pineal Tumor
Pineal tumors accounts for 1 percent of brain tumors. Most common types of pineal tumors are gliomas, pineal cell tumors and germ cell tumors. Cancerous form of pineal tumor is called pineoblastoma.

Pituitary Tumor
Pituitary tumor is an abnormal growth on the pituitary gland that occurs for unknown reasons. The gland is located on the base of the brain and controls the release of hormones, regulating everything from growth to metabolism.

Skull Base Tumor
Skull base is a complex bone surface on which the brain rests within. Different tumors, noncancerous and cancerous may arise from or extend into this area. Noncancerous tumors could still cause complications if they grow large enough and begin putting pressure on nearby areas.

Trigeminal Neuralgia
Trigeminal neuralgia is a type of chronic pain that affects the face. It causes extreme sudden burning shock like pain. Usually affects one side of the face. Vibrations on the face, such as from talking can set it off. The condition may come and go, disappearing for days, even months. But the longer the pain is, the less often it will go away.

Vascular Malformation
Vascular malformation is the term used to describe several types of vascular irregularities or abnormalities of the blood vessels. Types of irregularities includes: veins, arteries, lymph vessels or any combination of these.

Vestibular Schwannomas
