In brief: Both

The national institute of health has recommended that acoustic neuroma patients be treated by a team of physicians including ENT and neurosurgery, because patient outcomes were better than when just one specialty was involved.
Frequently both physicians will be involved with the surgery, depending on the chosen surgical approach.

In brief: Depends

Many acoustic neuromas can be treated by either an ENT or neurosurgeon.
Often we work together to provide the best possible use of each of our respective skill sets. It may depend on the size and location of the tumor and whether or not there is hearing preservation. It is best to work with a place that uses a team approach so that you get the best of both specialties.
