What Sets Us Apart

Skull base tumors occur at the base of the brain, an area filled with delicate nerves important for seeing, hearing, balance, and facial movement and sensation. At NYU Langone, skull base surgeons and neurosurgeons have many years of experience in skillfully removing these tumors, using both minimally invasive and open surgical approaches.

To provide the best possible treatment, your team of doctors at the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center may also include ear, nose, and throat specialists, head and neck surgeons, neuro-oncologists, and radiation oncologists. Rehabilitation therapists may play a significant role in your care, helping you to return to your daily activities after treatment.


At NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, we personalize the care of every patient.More About Perlmutter Cancer Center

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment depends on the type of skull base tumor. For some tumors that aren’t causing symptoms, doctors may recommend a period of watchful waiting instead of immediate treatment. For other tumors, doctors may recommend surgery, radiation therapy, medications, or a combination of treatments.
