Endoscopic surgery is performed through the nose to remove tumors from
the pituitary gland and skull base. It is a "minimal invasive surgery",
wherein the surgeon works through the nostrils, with an endoscopic camera
and light to remove tumors with the help of long instruments. Various
extended skull base procedures can be done through endoscopic method for
tumor removal. The endoscopic method provides better visualization, depth
perception and 360 degree orientation during surgery. The post operative
pain, hospital stay and morbidity to the patient is comparatively less
when compared to open surgery.
