Endoscopic and Minimally Invasive Skull Base Surgery

Endoscopic procedures allow surgeons at the Atlantic Skull Base Surgery Program to remove tumors using the natural openings of the face instead of through incisions. This provides our patients with numerous benefits, including fewer complications, reduced pain and blood loss, shorter recovery times, and improved cosmetic outcomes.

The removal of skull base tumors via an endoscope – a thin telescope with a camera and light on one end – is often done through the nose using the combined efforts of an otolaryngologist (ENT) and a neurosurgeon. This tool provides our surgeons with better visibility and allows them to work around critical structures without manipulating them.

Some of the skull base tumors treated at our program with endoscopy include pituitary tumors, craniopharyngiomas, Rathke’s cleft cysts, encephalocele or cerebrospinal fluid leak, and nasal and sinus tumors, among others. Endoscopic techniques continue to evolve so patients should always discuss with their surgeons if it’s right for them.
