Skull Base Tumor Treatments
Surgery is often required to treat skull base tumors before they spread or put pressure on critical parts of the brain and nerves.
Our surgeons can reach tumors and malformations that were once considered unreachable with the use of leading-edge imaging and surgical techniques.Due to their location, some skull base tumors can be difficult to reach with conventional neurosurgery. Highly precise and minimally invasive therapies may offer a safer treatment option with less damage to surrounding healthy tissue for skull-based tumors such as acoustic neuroma and glomus jugulare.
When brain surgery isn’t an option, patients with skull base tumors may undergo chemotherapy, radiation therapy or ultra-precise proton therapy.
