I am a 26 years old patient who is being diagnosed with a large meningioma tumor identified anterior to the cervicomedullary junction at the C1-C2 level. It is intradural/extra-medullary measuring approximately 3.2 cm superior to inferior x 2.2 cm transverse.
Based on the radiologist comment, this needs an urgent neurosurgical evaluation. It needs a complex surgery on my spinal and brain stem. I have consulted some of the neurosurgeons in my country, Canada, and they have refused to accept me and perform the surgery on this tumor.
Is anybody aware of a doctor who is expert in the surgery of this tumor in Canada or other countries? Your help is highly appreciated.
I am specialized in this kind of tumor. If you could send the films, I could revise them for you free of charge and evaluate the possibility of Endoscopic Endonasal Approach for resection of it.
I am located in Columbus, Ohio.
