Skull-Base Conditions

The cranial base, where all of the critical blood vessels and nerves enter or exit the skull, is one of the most delicate and complex areas of the human body. Diseases of this region include both malignant and benign tumors as well as congenital and anatomical defects. When tumors show signs of growth or interfere with the function of the brain or nerves, surgery may be required.

Today, virtually all areas of the brain and skull base can be reached using advanced minimally invasive procedures meaning no scarring and a shorter hospital stay.
