Skull Based Tumors
Drs. King & Zuniga treat non-cancerous and cancerous tumors of the base of skull. Many skull base tumors require a team approach, utilizing the expertise of other surgeons and medical specialists to provide optimal care of these complex conditions. We work closely with neurosurgeons, head and neck surgeons, oral surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and infectious disease specialists to provide comprehensive management.
Types of skull base tumors include:
- Acoustic Neuromas (Vestibular schwannomas)
- Choleterol Granulomas
- Glomus Tumors
- Cancer of the temporal bone including the outer ear, ear canal and/or middle ear.
- Parotid gland (salivary gland) tumors that involve the skull base or facial nerve.
- Osteomyelitis (bone infection) of the skull base.
