The Vanderbilt Skull Base Center treats many non-tumor conditions that affect bones, nerves and skin in the skull base area. Our care team has the experience and expertise required to achieve optimal results from your treatment for any skull base non-tumor condition you’re experiencing.
Vanderbilt is a leader in treating cerebrospinal fluid leaks (CSF), consistently performing more procedures than all other Tennessee hospitals combined.
Doctors from multiple specialties are brought into your treatment team when needed. These might include ENTs, physical therapists, oncologists, radiologists and others. Our multi-specialty surgery team consists of a skull base neurosurgeon, neurotologist, neuroanesthesia specialist and — if needed — a head and neck surgeon.
We tailor your treatment plan to meet your unique needs and health goals. We help you navigate your treatment options to ensure that you receive the best possible care.
