The Department of Neurosurgery

Meningioma and Skullbase Tumor Program

We use a multidisciplinary approach to these often complex and debilitating disorders featuring specialists in neurosurgery, neuro-otology, neuro-interventional radiology, and stereotactic radiosurgery.

Provide diagnostic evaluations and treatment of the following conditions:

  • Acoustic neuromas (schwannomas)
  • Petroclival and cavernous sinus meningioma
  • Chordomas
  • Metastatic skullbase tumors

 Features safer, less invasive techniques such as:

  • Keyhole surgery
  • Endoscopic-assisted surgery
  • Transsphenoidal surgery, including extended approaches for suprasellar and clival tumors (e.g. meningiomas, craniopharyngiomas, chordomas)
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery for surgically inaccessible, residual, or recurrent tumors
  • Second opinions and follow-up evaluations for patients treated at other facilities
