Penn Center for Cranial Base Surgery

Team

Given the complexity of many cranial base disorders, the Penn Center for Cranial Base Surgery utilizes a multidisciplinary approach combining the expertise of Penn specialists who collaborate and determine an individualized treatment plan designed expressly for each patient.

A Team Approach to Cranial Base Surgery

Physicians from neurosurgery, otorhinolaryngology - head and neck surgery, medical oncology, endocrinology, neuroradiology, radiation oncology, and plastic and reconstructive surgery, meet at a biweekly skull base tumor conference to discuss every case and formulate a treatment plan.

Throughout the course of a patient's comprehensive care, additional support is provided by experienced physical and occupational therapists, speech and swallowing therapists, rehabilitation medicine physicians, social workers, endocrinologists, neuro-ophthalmologists and dieticians.
