Skull Base Tumors

The skull base separates the brain from other structures of the head. It sits behind the eyes and above the nasal cavity—the large empty space behind the nose—and slopes down to the back of the head. Because of where they occur, skull base tumors can affect delicate nerves important for seeing, hearing, balance, and facial movement and sensation.

Treatment for Skull Base Tumors

Treatment for skull base tumors includes surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy, targeted drugs, and other medications. The skull base surgeons and neurosurgeons on our team have many years of experience in skillfully removing these tumors, using both open and minimally invasive surgical approaches. To provide the best possible treatment, your team may also include ear, nose, and throat specialists, head and neck surgeons, neuro-oncologists, and radiation oncologists.
