Skull Base Surgery

The UPMC Center for Cranial Base Surgery is a collaborative team of head & neck surgeons and neurosurgeons that has pioneered minimally invasive endoscopic techniques for the removal of deep-seated tumors in the nasal cavity/sinuses and at the base of the brain. Led by Dr. Carl Snyderman (Otolaryngology) and Dr. Paul Gardner (Neurosurgery), the team is recognized globally for its expertise and attracts patients from around the world for the treatment of benign and malignant tumors in both adult and pediatric patients. They continue to develop new minimally invasive surgical approaches and techniques that minimize the morbidity of surgery and enhance outcomes. In addition to patient care, the skull base team provides global education through regular dissection courses, broadcasting of teaching surgeries, a free educational website, and remote surgical telementoring.
