Endoscopic Endonasal Approach (EEA): Chapman Neurosurgical Spine Institute
How Endoscopic Endonasal Approach works
With the advances in research and treatment techniques in the medical field the benefits to patients are substantial. Life expectancy has increased along with enjoyment of life with surgeries now available that enhance the well being of the general population. The Endoscopic Endonasal Approach (EEA) is a ground-breaking surgical technique that benefits a patient who has been found to have brain tumors and lesions. It is innovative because this particular surgical procedure is to done through the nose and sinus areas. The procedure has proven to be a minimally invasive approach and allows the surgeons to treat otherwise many hard to reach tumors and those tumors previously viewed as 'inoperable'. It has been demonstrated to be a very beneficial treatment method for the professionals at the Chapman Neurosurgical Spine Institute in treating their patients.

The EEA surgical operation is an even further benefit to those patients undergoing the procedure as it does not involve any type of incisions to the skull or face that in past surgical operations of this kind could cause some disfigurement. When the tumor being treated is malignant the endoscopic endonasal approach allows the physician to immediately begin the necessary chemotherapy or radiation treatment to further reduce the tumor and heal the area without the added time of waiting for the incisions to heal.
Further benefits are the recovery time from an EEA surgery to the past traditional approaches. It is now days instead of being hospitalized for weeks or even months. There are also fewer traumas to the brain and critical nerves that control the areas of vision and hearing. Side effects are also lessened. Your health, recovery and seeking the least invasive procedures is the focus of our medical team.
