Learn About the Brain and Skull Base Tumors We Treat at Raleigh Neurosurgical Clinic
Our neurosurgical team members at Raleigh Neurosurgical Clinic work together to treat a variety of brain conditions. Our experienced surgeons perform more than 700 procedures a year on patients of all ages. Treatments we specialize in include:
A brain tumor is a mass, or growth, of abnormal cells within tissues located in or close to the brain. It can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign), and can begin within the brain (primary) or in other parts of the body and then spread to the brain (secondary, or metastatic).
Skull Base Tumors
A skull base tumor is a rare growth of abnormal cells located inside or outside the skull base, the bones that form the floor of the skull. They can be cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (benign), and they can either begin in the skull base or result from cancer that has spread (metastasized) from another part of the body.
Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic condition which causes facial pain, and that can have a significant impact on quality of life.
