Skull Base Institute

Skull Base Institute has successfully treated over 6,000 patients

The Skull Base Institute (SBI), is the first and only center devoted entirely to the art of skull base surgery. It is the first institute to perform every procedure using minimally invasive endoscopic techniques and after pioneering endoscopic pituitary surgery, the only institute doing fully endoscopic surgery to treat acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, craniopharyngiomas, pineal tumors, arachnoid cysts, trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm. These techniques result in fewer complications, less pain and faster recovery than “open brain” craniotomies. SBI’s director, Dr. Hrayr Shahinian, is not a Neurosurgeon. He is exclusively a Skull Base Surgeon who has done a lengthier and more specialized training to include skull base, craniofacial and microvascular fellowships. These skills make SBI’s team uniquely qualified to operate on the most complex area of the human anatomy and contributes to the success in treating over 6,000 skull base patients.
