Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery

The Institute of Oncology and Radiobiology offers comprehensive care of patients with complex tumors. The neurosurgery specialty provides treatment through minimally invasive procedures to patients with brain, skull base and spinal tumors, whether benign or malignant.


Minimally invasive surgery in neurosurgery humanizes patient care, reduces hospital stay, with fast recovery and minimal cosmetic, functional and psychological problems, and allows access to highly complex lesions. Radiosurgery is also performed in this center, which is a treatment to treat a brain tumor without the need for surgery.

The procedures offered are:
- 360 degree endoscopic surgery for intraconal orbital tumors.
- Endoscopic endonasal approach to tumors of the selar region, anterior cranial base, clivus and craniospinal junction.
- Endoscopic orbital decompression in thyroid orbitopathy.
- Endoscopic surgery of hydrocephalus.
- Endoscopic surgery of intraventricular tumors.
- Endoscopic brain tumor brainport surgery.
- Endoscopic keyhole surgery to tumors of the posterior fossa, pontocerebelous angle, medial cranial base, cavernous sinus and anterior cranial base.
- Minimally invasive endoscopic surgery of spinal tumors.
- Endoscopic treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and other facial pain.
- Stereotactic radiosurgery for brain tumors and cavernous angiomas.
