Tumors that grow in the base of the skull—behind the eyes and nose—are some of the most challenging to treat. These tumors grow in an area that is very close to critical nerves and blood vessels in the brain, head, neck and spinal cord. Even benign (non-cancerous) tumors of the skull base can cause serious complications, such as vision or hearing loss and effects on growth, hormone production, fertility or balance.

The Clinic offers patients with benign or malignant tumors of the skull base the most current diagnostic and treatment options available. Endoscopic excision of anterior skull base tumours with reduced morbidity. Using tiny endoscopic instruments, surgeons can now remove some tumors through the nostrils or through tiny incisions in the eyebrow or the back of the ear.

A multi-disciplinary approach to these conditions ensures that a whole team of neurotologists, rhinologists, radiation oncologists, neurosurgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, and therapists will work towards the best possible outcome for your surgery.
