Stanford Health Care offers minimally invasive transorbital skull base surgery to treat tumors or other abnormal growths behind the eyes, in the base of the skull, or near the sinuses. Transorbital procedures such as transorbital neuroendoscopic surgery (also known as TONES) are designed to provide an effective treatment, minimize trauma to healthy tissue, shorten hospital stays and recovery times, and reduce the risk of complications and scarring.
Transorbital Skull Base surgery is performed by a team of oculoplastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and rhinologists working in close coordination. Our doctors are among the most experienced in the world. We have helped lead the development of this innovative technique and continue to research new advances. As a result, we can offer patients the most advanced transorbital skull base surgical options, some not yet available anywhere else.
