Pediatric Skull Base Program

Pediatric Skull Base Program

Children's Health℠ has the only pediatric program in North Texas with minimally invasive procedures for skull base lesions

Today, many skull base disorders are treated with endoscopic procedures – a minimally invasive surgical approach. Children with certain skull base disorders who have endoscopic surgery can have a better outcome, less pain and a faster recovery.

Our pediatric skull base program is the only one of its kind in North Texas. We offer unmatched expertise in performing endoscopic anterior skull base surgeries on children. Our team works across disciplines – including neurosurgery, endocrinology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) and others – to determine the type of procedure that’s right for your child. Our skull base surgeons treat many different types of skull base disorders, such as congenital encephaloceles, pituitary, and sellar lesions.

Conditions We Treat

  • Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Leaks
  • Chordomas
  • Juvenile Angiofibromas
  • Pituitary Adenomas
  • Ratkhe’s Cleft Cyst
