Here, the blood supply to the brain enters the skull and the cranial nerves exit. Previously, patients have had to travel outside of the region for this highly complex surgery, which may be used to treat brain tumors and other conditions. Dr. Harrison has conducted research and published widely on topics concerning skull base surgery, including treatment for meningioma, usually benign brain tumors that often are located at the base of the skull. He has also conducted research and published widely on surgical treatment for a range of cervical and spine problems.
