Skull-Base Surgery


Lesions in the base of the skull constitute a group of tumoral and vascular lesions located at the base of the brain in a delicate and intricate anatomical region.  Treatment of such lesions pose great difficulties for doctors because it is necessary to provide relief from tumor associated problems, while simultaneously preserving and protecting the normal functions and anatomy.  Therefore, advanced surgical skills, proficiency, and high-end technologies are required for such surgeries. 

Innovative technologies such as the 3T intraoperative MRI and Gamma-knife radiosurgery available at the Healthcare Group making treatments safer than ever.  The neurosurgical department is one of the leading centers in the world, with members and leaderships in international organizations and participation in and for the organizing of international meetings.

The Adult and Pediatric Neurosurgery Department performs all types of surgical interventions available in epilepsy surgeries.  Although the primary treatment for epilepsy is medicinal, approximately 20 – 30% of patients do not respond to medical treatment and surgery is presented as an alternative.  Resective surgery, disconnection surgery, and vagal nerve stimulation, which are the three methods of epilepsy surgery, are performed with success at the Healthcare Group.
