Skull Base Conditions Treated
The Cranial Base Center is a collaborated effort of neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, neuroradiologists, oral maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, nurses and skilled operating room staff. The participation of these specialists allow a multimodality approach incorporating conventional and minimally invasive surgical strategies along with endovascular interventional approaches and Gamma Knife radiosurgery, all with the ultimate goal of restoring or preserving neurological function. We continue to pursue innovative approaches in order to optimize outcome while minimizing complications.
The skull base includes structures of the anterior, middle, and posterior cranial fossa. These regions may be involved by disease processes arising intracranially, within the bone of the skull base itself, and extracranially. The center has extensive experience treating such conditions in both adults and children.
