Surgical intervention outcomes have been significantly improved through the addition of surgical navigation systems. These devices allow the surgeon more accuracy and safety in removing disease. The Center for Skull Base Surgery has become a recognized center for the development of image guided surgery.
This technology is a clinically effective and safe treatment for skull base tumors that were once considered inoperable because of their location. Used as an adjunct therapy or by itself, Gamma Knife provides high-precision, high intensity beams to destroy tumors without surgical incision or a long hospital stay. This therapy minimizes the side effects of radiation therapy and is the most precise system available for the delivery of radiotherapy to the brain.
