Endosopic Tumor and Skull Base Surgery
 
Endosocopic techniques are now used to approach diseases of the pituitary gland, nose and bottom of the brain (skull base) that previously required large facial incisions, significant discomfort and long hospital stays.
 
Dr. Dubin, working in conjunction with Bimal Rami, MD (Neurosurgery) at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center offers endososcopic approaches to many of these tumors. 
 
Via the nostril, Dr. Dubin and Dr. Rami can remove pituitary adenomas, benign nasal tumors (i.e. inverted papillomas), certain brain tumors (i.e. meningiomas) that only a few years ago would have been removed with large facial incisions.  While not for all patients or all tumors, an endoscopic approach offers comparable outcome with SIGNIFICANTLY less discomfort and recovery time.
 
At present, there are few other medical centers in Baltimore offering this minimally invasive approach for these tumors.  Dr. Dubin and Dr. Rami have the longest experience in Baltimore of any ENT/Neurosurgery team in performing these minimally invasive, purely endoscopic tumor resections.

Dr. Dubin and Dr. Rami are Co-Directors of the Minimally Invasive Pituitary and Anterior Skull Base Center at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center.
