The Cranial Base (skull base) center at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center-Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute provides comprehensive, personalized care for disorders affecting the skull base, paranasal sinuses, spine and brain.
Our surgeons are recognized leaders in minimally invasive surgical approaches, such as the endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) and endoscopic brain surgery, as well as in traditional surgery. Our expert skull base reconstruction surgeons use state-of-the-art techniques to provide restoration of form and function for patients who might otherwise be left with a deficit. Our aim is to provide each patient resolution of his or her disease with the smallest possible effect on post-treatment quality of life.

Our unique, centrally located clinic houses our multidisciplinary
team of surgeons, nurses, therapists and support staff. Centralized
coordination of patient care allows us to streamline the treatment
process from the time of diagnosis through post-treatment follow-up
visits. We make every effort to make your visit to Ohio State as
efficient as possible.
The Cranial Base center at The Ohio State University is dedicated to
improving the diagnosis, management and treatment outcomes of cranial
base disorders through research. Our physicians pioneered minimally
invasive surgical techniques such as the EEA. Our laboratories have
ongoing research projects aimed at improving instrumentation and
surgical techniques, enhancing diagnosis of cranial base disorders,
developing new approaches to difficult-to-reach lesions and reducing
postoperative problems such as infection.
