Skull base surgery is unique in that the surgical approach varies according to location and complexity. Often, the neurosurgeon can access the site through natural openings of the head. For example, pituitary tumors are commonly removed through the nasal passage using a narrow tube equipped with microscopic tools (endoscope).

This less invasive approach speeds recovery and decreases the risk of infection related to healing incisions.
