Endoscopic Transnasal Neurosurgery

Our neurosurgeons have developed expanded endoscopic transnasal neurosurgery for brain tumors and skull-based surgeries in North Texas.

Benefits of Endoscopic Transnasal Neurosurgery Include:

  • No brain retraction
  • No facial scars
  • Reduced hospital stay
  • Faster recovery time
  • Fewer complications

Tumors Treated With Endoscopic Transnasal Neurosurgery at the Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery Center:

  • Pituitary tumors
  • Craniopharyngioma
  • Meningiomas
  • Chordomas and chondrosarcomas
  • Sinonasal tumors

Innovative Treatment at the Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery Center

The 360 Minimally Invasive Concept

This unique array of neurosurgical approaches allows the removal of complex brain tumors from all locations within the brain and skull base — with minimal brain manipulation, no cosmetic insult and maximum preservation of function.

The 360 Concept employs leading-edge surgical approaches:

  • Expanded transnasal endoscopy
  • Brain endoscopic neurosurgery
  • Focused skull-based approaches
  • Transportal brain microsurgery

Extradural Navigation Concept

This approach uses the natural extradural spaces at the skull base to gain access to deep brain tumors. This strategy avoids unnecessary early exposure and manipulation of the brain, thereby reducing brain injury and complications.

No Footprint Concept

At the Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery Center, the routine use of minimally invasive strategies in neurosurgery has resulted in less brain trauma and manipulation. These advantages are clearly illustrated by the absence of footprints — brain edemas and contusions on post-operative MRIs — and their undesirable consequences.
