Surgery of Skull Base
Open surgery involves removing the tumor through the incision in the skull bone and face. After the tumor is removed the soft tissue and the bone are reconstructed for best possible appearance.
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical approach with the advantage of shorter hospital stay, less complications and quicker recovery. This involves the accurate visualization of the tumor through an endoscope.
The endoscope is a pen-sized thin instrument attached with the camera that sends pictures to the external display that guides the surgeon.
