Hi all. My 39-year-old husband has a carotid body tumor. We're in Chattanooga, TN. The surgeon we met with yesterday says we need to find a surgeon who has as much experience as possible with carotid body tumors. Can anyone make any suggestions? We are willing to travel and we are close to Nashville, Atlanta, Birmingham and other major cities in the Southeast.
Also anyone who has had this surgery that could give us a little insight about what we're about to experience would be appreciated.
