Endoscopic endonasal surgery
Endoscopic endonasal surgery is a minimally invasive technique that allows a surgeon to go through the nose in order to correct problems or remove brain and upper spinal tumours.
A thin fiber-optic tube called an endoscope is guided through the nose and sinuses. This gives the neurosurgeon access to parts of the brain that would be difficult to reach using conventional surgical approaches. Traditional techniques require large incisions and the removal of parts of the skull. With the endoscopic endonasal approach, recovery is often quicker and less painful.
