Endoscopic Endonasal Skull Base Surgery

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

A minimally invasive procedure to treat patients with skull base tumors, endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery provides surgeons access to tumors deep within the brain. Before this breakthrough procedure, many tumors were inoperable because it was impossible or too risky to perform traditional brain surgery. The surgeon uses a small tube-like instrument threaded through the nose to biopsy and remove dangerous tumors. The advanced procedure reduces recovery time, pain and scaring because the surgeon does not make an incision. The neurological team at Florida Hospital provides this advanced treatment for qualified patients. See if this is a treatment option for you. Schedule an appointment today.

For patients with tumors deep within the brain, endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery may offer a treatment option for conditions that were once inoperable. The minimally invasive procedure uses a tube-like instrument with a small camera on the end called an endoscope. The surgeon threads the endoscope through the nose and into the deep area of the brain.

The surgeon can then biopsy, treat or remove the tumor through the endoscope. With increased precision and accuracy, endoscopic endonasal skull base surgery reduces the risks and recovery time associated with brain surgery. Since the surgery can be completed without a large incision, patients experience less pain and have a reduced chance of infection.
