Endoscopic Osteoma Excision

August 20, 2019

An Endoscopic Osteoma Excision is routinely performed for those who suffer from bony bumps on the forehead and wish for removal without an overlying incision line/scar. The patients often complain of a firm, immoble, long-standing, slowly-growing bump. The bump presents certain frustrations as it reflects light and shows up in every photo. Fortunately, with the use of an endoscope, an osteoma can be approached through an endoscopic tunnel with an entry port in the hairline. The surgery usually takes 45-60 minutes and patients have a rapid recovery. If you have a forehead bump that concerns, you we encourage you to visit our office for a consultation.
