The orbit is the bony socket that holds the eyeball and the muscles and nerves and blood vessels around it. As six of the twelve main cranial nerves that lead through the brain come out through the orbit, one can appreciate how delicate the surgery in this area can be. Orbital tumors are very dangerous as well as disfiguring. Patients with orbital tumors will receive thorough ocular and medical examinations. Dr. McKinstry works with other medical sub-specialists before excising the tumor and performing any other sort of treatment.
