ENDONASAL BRAIN SURGERY
"Traditionally we took these out through the skull. We would actually open up the head move the brain aside and we'd have to go around the brain and in between the brain to try to get to these tumors," says Dr. Schwartz.
But Dr. Schwartz put her at ease and offered her the newest approach to these tumors: that is, to go through her nose!
Which means for example, no risk of stroke from disrupting the carotid artery.
"Every time we do one of these cases we are very excited to do it because we are doing something that is new and different. It's great to be at the cutting edge of this," states Dr. Schwartz.
The patient goes home typically in two to three days rather than in five or six days.
