Skull base surgery is one of the most challenging areas of practice in medicine because of the complexity and intricacy of the structures that form the base of the skull and the brain. At the Barrow Skull Base Program, our neurosurgeons have collectively spent decades studying the anatomy of the skull base, devising new treatments and surgical approaches for tumors and lesions that occur deep in the brain, and teaching successive generations of master skull base surgeons.
