re: post about nerve sheath tumor/cleveland clinic
I see a referral to Cleveland Clinic's doctor Dr. William Bingaman at 216-444-5672. I see where he specializes in epilepsy...and spinal cord tumors amoung other things. I'm wondering why he was particularly mentioned; does he have the most experience with spinal cord tumors (nerve sheath tumors)? I don't see on Cleveland Clinic's site where I can find a doctor with the most experience in removing these tumors. My concern is the post-op chronic pain. I also can't find any percentages of this happening and what types of surgery can cause it (I assume it's the surgery causing nerve damage that causes the pain...). I'm just wondering why this doctor was mentioned...what makes him stand out in this field as opposed to any others?  I'm also wondering about the pain that isn't chronic after surgery. I've read where pain after surgery can be ongoing and no pain meds or blocks, etc. can help. What are the chances of this happening?  
My tumor is benign and I want to have it removed but don't want the chronic pain involved. I want the most experienced person to perform the surgery.
Also the initial poster said Cleveland Clinic is highly regarded in this field. I am wondering where those posts are. I'm wondering also if any doctors in Columbus Ohio are regarded as highly.
