Surgeons at Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware perform advanced procedures on the skull base, or the bottom of the head, and sinuses. Families come here for our expertise in precisely removing tumors and other growths and making repairs in this delicate area, even in the tiniest babies.
Whenever possible, our team uses endoscopic approaches that involve tiny instruments and tubes with cameras inserted through the nose or mouth. This method can mean fewer, smaller, and hidden cuts. It can also mean better results and a faster recovery.
Nemours Children’s is at the leading edge of pediatric endoscopic skull base surgery. In fact, our surgeons collaborate with Jefferson Health’s Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience team. The same team that’s renowned for developing new tools and techniques in use today.
