Our Approach

At the CHRISTUS Neuroscience Institute, our physicians generally see skull base tumors that arise in the highly complex region behind the eyes and nose and slopes down to the back of the head. They may start in areas below the skull base, such as the sinus or inner ear; begin as brain tumors that grow down toward the skull base; or grow into the bones of the skull base.

The skull base has anterior, middle and posterior compartments. Tumors are classified based on the type of cells present, thus surgical approaches are selected based on the location of the tumor.
