Skull base surgery

Skull base surgery is surgery that is done to remove a tumor or other growth at the base, or bottom, of the skull.

Minimally invasive skull base surgery, also called endoscopic skull base surgery, is a surgical technique that lets doctors do this delicate surgery through the nose.

Skull base surgery is done to remove tumors, including:

craniopharyngiomas (a brain tumor near the pituitary gland )
tumors in the pituitary gland
sinonasal tumors (tumors of the sinuses and nasal cavities)
