Skull-based surgery

Skull-based surgery is a minimally invasive surgical method that treats the brain's underside. The technique allows effective treatment for hard-to-reach brain areas for outcomes with less pain, short recovery times and fewer complications.


Skull Base Surgery in Orange Park

HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital is a leader in Skull Base Surgery

Our board-certified surgeons are expertly trained in laparoscopic, minimally invasive techniques to effectively treat both benign and cancerous growths, including skull base tumors (tumor growths that occur in the sinuses, ears, eyes or around the base of the skull).

Our Treatments & Services

The procedure is often performed by a skilled ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialist or otolaryngologist, who partner with a neurosurgeon to access the growth through the nose, forehead or eyelid. During the surgery, a surgeon makes a tiny incision to insert a small tube, called an endoscope, to allow for the removal of the growth.

We leverage Skull Base Surgery to treat:

  • Benign and cancerous growths
  • Growths caused by infections
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia, a rare nerve disorder that causes intense pain on one side of the face


Our dedicated clinicians will work with you to ensure effective care and recovery. In certain cases, additional therapy or consultation may be needed and HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital stands ready to offer you the support to keep you going.
