The Skull Base Tumor Center brings together experts across several specialties at Johns Hopkins to treat this diverse group of tumors, which grow inside the bottom of the skull. Common skull base tumor types seen by our team include meningiomas, olfactory neuroblastoma, craniopharyngioma and acoustic neuroma.
Why Choose Johns Hopkins
Our multidisciplinary team specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skull base tumors and conditions, offering each patient a comprehensive treatment plan with the combined insights of several different specialties.
Neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists at Johns Hopkins work together to determine and perform the most appropriate procedure for each patient. Many patients with skull base tumors are treated with novel, minimally-invasive approaches that leave smaller scars and have faster recoveries.
