Types of Tumors
Nose, sinus and skull base tumor types that our experts treat include:
- Squamous cell carcinoma
- Adenoid cystic carcinoma
- Neuroendocrine carcinoma
- Mucoepidermoid carcinoma
- Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma (SNUC)
Treatment of sinus and skull base cancers can involve radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. For cancer patients requiring surgery, we use approaches that are tailored to the patient and the type and extent of their skull base tumor.
Our techniques include:
- Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery: This minimally invasive approach removes tumors through the nose with the assistance of scopes and cameras without facial incisions.
- Open: Open approaches involve incisions and making bony cuts in the skull to access and remove the tumor. Reconstructive techniques are used to retain optimal cosmetic and functional outcomes.
- Endoscopic-Assisted Open Approach: This approach uses the advantages of both endoscopic and open approaches to remove tumors.
