Skull Base Surgeries

Skull-based surgeries are specialized surgeries performed to remove the benign or cancerous tumors present at the base of the skull or the few vertebrae in the upper spinal region. The surgeries can be effectively performed through endoscopic procedures that improve overall outcomes.

Our Offerings

  • Endoscopic Pituitary Surgery: Also known as transsphenoidal endoscopic surgery, it is one of the most common surgeries for removing pituitary tumors. The surgery uses an endoscope. They are used to treat hormone-secreting tumors, non-hormone-secreting tumors, and cancer tumors.
  • Endoscopic Excision of Nasal and Sinus Tumors: Endoscopic endonasal surgery is performed for the excision of sinus and nasal tumors. It allows the surgeons to avoid large excisions for removing the tumors.
  • Endoscopic CSF Leak Repairs: Leakage in the cerebrospinal fluid from the brain or spinal cord, results in otorrhea or rhinorrhea. A transnasal endoscopic CSF leak repair procedure can effectively treat the leakage.
  • Juvenile Nasopharyngeal Angiofibroma Excision: Due to the advancements in surgical procedures, the excision of the juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma can be performed through endoscopic surgery. The surgeon may recommend radiation therapy if the tumor is not completely removed through a surgical procedure.
  • Excision of Midline Brain Tumors: Midline brain tumor is a mass in the middle of the brain. Excision of these tumors through an endoscopic transnasal approach offers several benefits, such as excellent visualization, sufficient access to the midline, and minimal complications.
  • Excision of Tumors of the Infratemporal Fossa: Endoscopic endonasal approach is a minimally invasive procedure that may also be used for the excision of tumors of the infratemporal fossa. It offers high efficacy in resection with a low frequency of complications.
  • Endoscopic Optic Nerve Decompression: Endoscopic surgery also decompresses the optic nerve by lowering the hydrostatic pressure. The procedure has no major intraorbital, intracranial, or transnasal complications.
  • Endoscopic Orbital Decompression: Orbital decompression is a treatment procedure performed on patients suffering from orbital compression syndrome. The procedure involves orbital wall thinning to create space in orbit.
  • Surgery for Mucormycosis: Mucormycosis is a rare but serious fungal infection. If not treated, the infection may spread to orbit. Mucormycosis surgery may include resection of facial tissues, necrotic temporal tissue, infratemporal fossa tissue, and orbital exenteration.

The complications of orbital compression include pain, extra-ocular motility restriction that may or may not accompany reduced visual acuity, and eyelid edema.

Symptoms of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma include nasal obstruction, nasal bleeding, sinusitis, nasal discharge, altered vision, and headache.
