The skull base is the bony shelf where the brain rests. Its five bones separate the brain from the eyes, nasal cavities, ear canals and upper neck. Skull base tumors and lesions tend to develop near critical brain structures, major nerves and blood vessels. Most are non-cancerous.

Our team cares for children with the following skull base disorders.

  • Acoustic neuroma
  • Acromegaly
  • Craniopharyngioma
  • Cushing syndrome
  • Epidermoid cyst
  • Chordoma
