Skull Base Surgery
Various different pathologies originate from or extend into the base of the skull. Treatment of lesions of the skull base may involve surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or a combination of therapies. Because of their location and proximity to other vital structures, skull base lesions present unique challenges for surgeons. Recent advances in diagnostic and surgical techniques have made the area more accessible to surgery, providing new treatments for these patients.
Radiosurgery is often a treatment option in the management of skull base tumors.
This technique allows surgeons to access the skull base through the nostrils, often avoiding the need for external incisions.
Proper rehabilitation after treatment is essential to a good outcome. Our multidisciplinary team is experienced in implantable hearing aids, cochlear and brainstem implants, rehabilitation of balance problems in our new Balance Center, as well as the management of swallowing dysfunction, and other deficits that may result from the pathology or treatment.
