Treatment for Schwannomatosis

Treatment for schwannomatosis may or may not require surgery, depending on the symptoms the patient is presenting.

Non-operative treatment options for schwannomatosis

Non-operative treatment for schwannomatosis may include observation, periodic imaging, and pain management. Observation and pain management are often recommended for tumors that cannot be removed surgically.

Surgical treatment options for schwannomatosis

Surgical treatment for schwannomatosis may be recommended for some peripheral nerve tumors associated with schwannomatosis. At Johns Hopkins, we employ the latest techniques (microsurgery) and tools (such as image-guided surgery and radiosurgery) to ensure excellent outcomes.

While there is currently no cure for schwannomatosis, there are clinical trials available at the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Neurofibromatosis (NF) Center.

For more information, contact the Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Neurofibromatosis (NF) Center at 410-502-6732.
