Combining world-class neuroscience expertise and leading-edge technology, Providence Endoscopic Pituitary and Skull Base Tumor Center provides the most advanced care in the Pacific Northwest for patients with brain tumors. Our board-certified physicians and surgeons take a multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach to caring for patients with brain tumors.
Since 2004, our surgeons have been at the forefront in the Pacific Northwest in developing multidisciplinary, minimally invasive endoscopic approaches to skull base lesions extending from the frontal sinus down to the C1-C2 junction. Compared to standard neurosurgical approaches, these techniques lead to shorter hospitalizations, faster recoveries and improved outcomes.
