First, you’ll meet with your doctor for a physical exam and to discuss your symptoms. Then your doctor may order imaging tests, such as an MRI, CT scan or angiogram.
If you have a glomus tumor, your Aurora neurosurgical team, including the experts at the Aurora Neuroscience Innovation Institute (ANII), will work with you to determine the best treatment for your needs. Your team may recommend a combination of treatments for glomus tumors, including surgery and radiation.
Your neurosurgeon may perform the Expanded Endonasal Approach (EEA), a minimally invasive procedure in which the tumor is removed through the nasal passages, resulting in no incisions, a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.
