Skull Base Surgery Treatment Options

Advanced Treatment Options for Skull Base Tumors

Depending on your condition and the location of your tumor, UPMC offers two preferred treatment options:

  • Endoscopic Endonasal Approach (EEA)—Pioneered at UPMC, EEA is an innovative surgical technique that removes brain tumors and lesions through the nose.
  • Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery — this painless treatment uses radiation beams to target tumors and lesions with no incisions.

Our team works to find the technique — or combination of techniques — that offers you the greatest chance of returning to normal life.
