Experience and innovation are driving targeted treatment plans for skull base tumor patients at The James. Skull base tumors&nbsp;&ndash;&nbsp;growths that develop in or near the base of the skull &mdash; can affect patients&rsquo; vision, hearing and abilities to swallow, among other issues. To treat these tumors, experts at the OSUCCC &ndash; James are combining new techniques with years of research and care experience to improve outcomes through innovative treatments, including endonasal surgery, the removal of tumors through nasal passages. &ldquo;This is a breakthrough because there are large tumors, and we're able to use the nasal passage to remove them, and we're able to do that in a minimally invasive way,&rdquo; Daniel Prevedello, MD, says. The surgery is one of several options available to The James&rsquo; skull base tumor patients, who work with doctors to create personalized treatment plans that fit their unique circumstances. &ldquo;We really try to customize care, not only with surgery but also with chemotherapy, radiation, everything that can be used to treat these tumors,&rdquo; Prevedello says.
