VIDEO: Brain surgery to save her smile

Jennifer Taylor knew something was wrong, but didn’t know what. She was losing hearing in her right ear, losing her balance, and about to lose the ability to smile on the right side of her face. She had a large tumor, called an acoustic neuroma growing in her head. 

Good thing she found Dr. Rick Nelson at IU Health who is really good at taking those out. 

“There’s not a lot of people that do acoustic neuroma surgery. Our success rate of having normal or near normal facial nerve function with large tumors is as good an anyone in the country.”
