I have just been diagnosed with a 20 x 17 x 16 mm acoustic neuroma and am interested in Cyberknife treatment. Can anyone recommend a good doctor in the Toronto or GTA area in Ontario? Also wondering how long it usually takes to get a referral as I'm very anxious to talk to a specialist soon. Thank you!

If you are interested in CyberKnife treatment, just get on the Accuray website and look for the nearest center. You could also probably be treated with Gamma Knife. It is not yet certain whether the ability to fractionate the treatment is helpful in hearing preservation. I doubt you will need surgery, but it is impossible to say without seeing the scans
