Skull Base & Spine Surgery
Skull Base & Spine Surgery Treatment in Pune
This type of procedure is performed primarily to operate on cysts, aneurysms, tumours (cancerous and non-cancerous) and other abnormalities present on the skull base, upper vertebrae or underside of the brain.
Typically, skull base & spine surgery is performed using minimally invasive methods, using an endoscope through the mouth, nose or by creating a small incision above the eye. These procedures require a multi-disciplinary approach that involves neurosurgeons, maxillofacial surgeons and radiologists. In some cases, it may be necessary to create an opening in the skull to facilitate surgical manoeuvres.
