Tests and Treatment Services

The Cranial Base (skull 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.

Some conditions we treat:

  • Benign intracranial tumors (pituitary, adenoma, meningioma, craniopharyngioma, schwannoma)
  • Malignant cranial base tumors (chordoma, chondrosarcoma, olfactory neuroblastoma)
  • Benign cranial base disorders (encephaloceles, mucoceles, cerebrospinal fluid leak, osteomas)
  • Benign sinonasal tumors (inverted papilloma, nasal polyps)
  • Malignant sinonasal tumors (squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma)
