Overview

Skull base surgery is a highly specialized, minimally invasive surgical technique that is performed to eliminate cancerous or benign growth and brain abnormalities located on the underside of the brain. The surgery is done at the base of the skull and at the top of the first few vertebrae on the spinal cord. During the surgery, surgeons use special instruments inserted through the skull’s natural openings (e.g., nose, mouth, and above the eyes) to operate rather than accessing the brain through a craniotomy (surgical opening of the skull). Your surgeon will advise the best type of surgery depending on the symptoms, the type of growth, and the location of the surgery.

Symptoms

  •   A birth defect in the skull known as Craniosynostosis
