Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery Program
As part of the Duke Skull Base Center, the endoscopic skull base surgery team offers minimally invasive endoscopic endonasal surgery for CSF leaks and tumors (benign and malignant) of the sinuses and skull base. Our team is consists of fellowship-trained otolaryngologists and neurosurgeons who have successfully performed hundreds of these operations.
We also enlist the help of neuroradiologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and endocrinologists through our participation in the Head and Neck Multidisciplinary Tumor Board and the Multidisciplinary Pituitary Conference. Through a team effort facilitated by a dedicated nurse navigator, all patients, including those traveling from out of town, will benefit from closely coordinated care.
The types of tumors we treat include but are not limited to:
- Pituitary adenoma
- Esthesioneuroblastoma (Olfactory neuroblastoma)
- Sinonasal undifferentiated carcinoma
- Cholesterol granuloma
- Adenoid cystic carcinoma
- Squamous Cell Carcinoma
- Mucosal Melanoma
- Inverted Papilloma
