Skull Base Surgery
The skull base forms the floor of the cranial cavity and separates the brain from other facial structures. It is one of the most complex areas of the body for surgery, because the skull base contains many intricate structures, including the eye orbits, ear canals, two carotid arteries, two vertebral arteries, 12 cranial nerves and the blood drainage system of the brain. Due to advances in diagnostics and surgical procedures, once-untreatable skull base tumors and other disorders can now be treated with minimal morbidity.
We treat some of the most difficult cases- Schwannomas, Tumors of the pituitary gland Meningiomas, Chordomas, and Cavernous sinus tumors.
