Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Skull Base Tumors

Due to the complex and delicate anatomy of the skull base, tumors in this region are some of the most difficult conditions treated by surgeons. However, patients at Atlantic Health System Neuroscience's Skull Base Surgery Program can rest assure that they are receiving expert, multidisciplinary care tailored to their individual needs.

Our specialized team, which works in collaboration with Atlantic Neuroscience Institute and the Leonard B. Kahn Head and Neck Cancer Institute, includes experts from neurosurgery, otolaryngology (head and neck) surgery, neuro-ophthalmology and radiation oncology. They use both traditional open microsurgery and endoscopic minimally-invasive surgery, to treat tumors and conditions affecting the three regions of the skull base – anterior, middle and posterior cranial fossa. Each patient’s case is reviewed to determine which option best suits their individual needs.
