Skull Base Surgery Program
The ANS Skull Base Surgery program brings together a collaborative team of experts from Neurosurgery, Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, Neuro-Ophthalmology, and Radiation Oncology to ensure a modern and comprehensive approach to this most complex area of the human anatomy. Our team of Skull Base Neurosurgeons utilizes the most advanced techniques involving microsurgery, radiosurgery, and minimally invasive approaches to provide the most effective and safe care. We strive to provide the best outcomes and quality of life for our patients with skull base tumors.
Our skull base surgeons focus on the removal of some of the most difficult-to-reach tumors within the head and neck. Because of the complexity of the anatomy within the skull base region and the wide range of disorders that affect this region our surgeons treat some of the most difficult cases. The skull base surgery team of physicians are experts in both open and minimally invasive approaches to acoustic neuromas, pituitary tumors, craniopharyngiomas, skull base meningiomas and metastases. We also specialize in cranial base approaches for treatment of trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, encephaloceles, tegmen defects and aneurysms.
With the collaboration of subspecialized, fellowship-trained physicians, brain tumor patients are guaranteed to receive the treatment that best suits their individual needs. Comfortable with standard open approaches, minimally invasive techniques, and radiosurgery, our patients benefit from more than a “one size fits all” approach. Our team can decide which option is best for the individual patients without being limited to one specific specialty.
The ANS Brain Skull Base Surgery program is co-directed by Dr. Yaron A. Moshel, co-director of the Overlook Hospital Brain Tumor surgery program and the Morristown Medical Center Endoscopic Skull base surgery center and Dr. Ron Benitez, director of Endovascular Neurosurgery at Atlantic Health System. Our renowned team of physicians cover a wide variety of hospitals and accept patients throughout the tri-state area.
