The approach to treating vestibular schwannomas ranges from wait-and-scan policies to micro-and radiosurgery. However, in the past few decades, Stereotac tic Radiosurgery (SRS) has emerged as an approved primary treatment option as well. In this review, we have assessed some of the existing literature on the role of SRS in the management of vestibular schwannomas, and to estimate its efficacy in tumour control and conservation of cranial nerve function.
