Dr. Michael Sisti, from the Gamma Knife and Brain Tumor centers, is a seasoned neurosurgeon who sees patients for a wide spectrum of ailments. One of the many conditions he is well known for treating is the acoustic neuroma.
Acoustic neuromas, also called vestibular schwannomas, are slow-growing, benign, nerve tumors located near the brainstem. They can cause ringing in the ear, hearing loss, and disturbances in balance. Surgical removal of these tumors, by an experienced neurosurgeon like Dr. Michael B. Sisti, can provide a cure.
For his continued dedication to acoustic neuroma patients, Dr. Sisti was honored last month by The Acoustic Neuroma Association of New Jersey (*ANA/NJ) at their meeting in Berkely Heights. He was presented with a plaque, which you can see below right. Dr. Sisti also spoke at the event; he took part in a “Doctors’ Panel,” where he discussed the surgical and gamma knife treatments for acoustic neuromas.
In addition to the acoustic neuroma, Dr. Sisti is widely recognized for his treatment of other conditions including: complex brain tumors, colloid cysts, glioblastomas, intraventricular tumors and meningiomas. He specializes in state-of-the-art computer guided microneurosurgery and Gamma Knife radiosurgery.
