KU Center for Neuroendoscopy
As one of the only centers in the region, Dr. Chamoun leads a team that offers a minimally invasive approach to intracranial diseases. The procedure is done through a small incision that would normally require a large incision. Many endoscopic endonasal procedures are performed with Dr. David Beahm, a colleague in otolaryngology (ENT).
Disorders treatable with Neuroendoscopy:
In many cases, the whole procedure can be done through a small hole using the neuroendoscope alone, in others the endoscope is used in combination with the surgical microscope during an open craniotomy (endoscopic-assisted surgery).
The Department of Neurosurgery will host a Neuroendoscopy Course in February 2015. The course will teach commonly used approaches for neuroendoscopy. Participants will practice these techniques on cadavers.
