This type of procedure is performed primarily to operate on cysts, aneurysms, tumors (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 maneuvers. Visit Manipal for the best neurosurgery in Mangalore.
