What Are Complex Cranial and Skull Base Surgeries?
Our physicians specializing in benign and malignant tumors and other vascular abnormalities occurring beneath the brain, at the skull base, and at the top of the spinal column employ complicated cranial neurosurgical procedures and other cutting-edge technologies to provide top-of-the-line treatments.
Craniotomies are a type of cranial surgery technique that can be used for a range of purposes:
Smaller keyhole craniotomies also called burr holes may be used to for a number of procedures:
Larger craniotomies often called skull base surgery require larger fragments of the skull to be removed and may be used as part of the process to treat cerebrovascular conditionssuch as brain aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, and tumors that are located beneath the brain, at the base of the skull.
Some tumors rooted deep inside the skull are more safely treated with state-of-the-art microscopic and ultrasound techniques.
Radiosurgery focuses beams on tumors or other lesions to help preserve the neighboring healthy tissue. Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery is an example of a bloodless and minimally invasive surgical treatment that can treat deep-seated tumors that were previously impossible to safely operate on.
