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.

Endoscopic and Minimally Invasive Skull Base Surgery

Endoscopic procedures allow surgeons at the Atlantic Health System Neuroscience's 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.
