We have a multidisciplinary team of physicians who work together to provide treatment for some of the most common and most complex skull base conditions. Our expertise comes from our experience. The dedicated team of skull base physicians works collaboratively to provide treatment solutions for skull base conditions such as:

  • Craniopharyngiomas
    A rare, slow-growing tumor that is usually found above the pituitary gland.
  • Chordomas
    A tumor, usually midline, that occurs anywhere in the spine or within the base of the skull.
  • Pituitary tumors
    Abnormal growths in the pituitary gland.
  • Meningiomas
    A tumor that arises from the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. 
  • Sinonasal tumors
    Noncancerous or cancerous growths that occur in the nose or sinuses.
  • Sarcomas
    Cancers, like chondrosarcomas and osteosarcomas, that grow in and affect bones, cartilage or soft tissue such as fat or muscle.
  • Meningoencephalocele/encephalocele
    An abnormal sac of fluid, brain tissue and/or membranes that protrudes through an opening in the skull.
  • Neurinoma/schwannoma
    A rare and often, a benign tumor that develops in or around the nerves.
  • Cerebrospinal fluid leak
    A tear or hole in the membranes around the brain or spinal cord that allows clear cerebrospinal fluid to leak.
  • Petrous apex and lateral skull base lesions
    Cysts, tumors or other growths that form in or around the temporal bone and ear.
  • Pharyngeal space lesions
    Tumors extending from deep compartments in the neck to the base of the skull.
