Skull Base Conditions and Treatments

Learn More About Treatment For Skull Base Disorders

Ear, nose and throat specialists (ENTs) at Aurora Health Care diagnose and treat disorders of the skull base, including the pituitary gland.

One of the procedures Aurora ENTs perform is a minimally invasive surgical technique called endoscopic anterior skull base surgery. This type of minimally invasive surgery involves the use of a tiny camera called an endoscope that is placed in the skull base through the nose (transnasal). With the help of the endoscope, ENTs can resect large tumors near the skull base without an incision, which can alleviate retraction on the brain. The endoscope offers additional benefits as well, making tumor resection a safer procedure.

ENTs at Aurora also can remove pituitary tumors using transnasal surgery techniques.

Minimally invasive procedures for skull base disorders and tumors offer many benefits to patients. They typically are typically safer and have fewer risks and a shorter recovery time.
