Transnasal Endoscopic Surgery | Sofia's Story
Diagnosed with a malignant skull base tumor declared inoperable by other surgeons, Sofia, a Connecticut teenager, came to Johns Hopkins and had her tumor removed with a transnasal endoscopic approach.
Sofia Giansiracusa presented with double vision and was soon told by doctors in Boston she had an inoperable, malignant skull base tumor. Looking for a solution, her father took Sofia to Johns Hopkins where she worked with a team from the Departments of Otolaryngology and Neurosurgery.
