When a brain tumor’s location or proximity to vital tissue makes minimally invasive procedures — such as the Endoscopic Endonasal Approach (EEA) or Neuroendoport® surgery — difficult, our neurosurgeons may perform a tumor resection through traditional, microsurgical methods.
Microsurgery may require facial and scalp incisions, or incisions behind the ear, in order to safely access and remove the brain tumor.
