Skull base surgery may be an option for certain benign or cancerous tumors and other abnormalities on the underside of the brain. It's a minimally invasive surgery that has less risk of infection and damage to existing tissue, less risk of disfigurement, and an improved recovery time.
We employ specialized instruments inserted through the nose, mouth, or above the eye to avoid traditional techniques that might require cutting through muscle and bone.
Skull base surgery can often treat growths caused by infections, tumors on the underside of the brain or behind the nose and eyes, intense facial pain on one side of the face, pituitary tumors, cysts that develop from birth, cerebral aneurysms, and malformed arteries and veins.
Your surgeon will discuss your diagnosis, options for treatment, and any risks and benefits.
We specialize in diagnosing and treating neurological conditions with a variety of surgical options for the brain, back and spine, and peripheral nerves.
