If you, a family member or friend have been diagnosed with a chordoma, our team of experts is here to provide help and guidance. At the Pacific Brain Tumor Center, we provide comprehensive care for patients with chordomas, as well as patient education and psychosocial support.

Clival chordomas are locally invasive tumors that arise in the base of the skull. They are best treated with maximal surgical removal followed by focused radiotherapy. Fortunately, the majority of chordomas can be removed via the nose using an endonasal endoscopic approach. At the Pacific Brain Tumor Center, our highly skilled neurosurgeons and ENT surgeons have one of the world’s largest experiences in endonasal endoscopic chordoma surgery. Our radiation oncologists also have extensive experience in the radiosurgical treatment of skull base tumors. Together our team can design the optimal treatment plan for each patient.
