Endonasal Skull Base Neurosurgery Department (the previous name “Department of Transsphenoidal Neurosurgery”) is the leading clinical unit of the institute in the field of neuro-oncology and the implementation of modern endoscopic technologies.

The department is equipped with a separate endoscopic operating unit with 2 Karl Storz endoscopic racks and a Karl Zeiss microscope.

Conservative and comprehensive treatment of tumors of the sellar localization and skull base, neuroendocrine and orphan diseases is carried out in the department. There is a multidisciplinary pituitary consulting center, which has an endocrinologist on staff and provides assistance to patients with endocrine disorders from all over Ukraine and abroad.

In children, transnasal-transsphenoidal endoscopic surgery of pituitary adenomas, craniopharyngiomas, and skull base tumors is performed in a special endoscopic operating room in cooperation with the endoscopic group of the children’s department using neuronavigation.

The clinic is a coordination center for cooperation between the Institutes of Neurosurgery and Endocrinology (Kyiv and Kharkiv) and European centers of skull base surgery, holds specialized international scientific conferences on pituitary pathology, and is a center for improving neuroendoscopy and transsphenoidal microsurgery.
