Ask the neurosurgeon: Skull base surgery for repair of a CSF leak is a major operation with a number of factors influencing OR time and recovery. The location of the leak determines the approach the surgeon takes, which is a big factor in the length of the surgery and the recovery time. This is a question that is best addressed by your surgeon.
