Skull Base Program receives honor
The North American Skull Base Society (NASBS) has named the UC Skull Base Program as a Multidisciplinary Team of Distinction. It is among 28 institutions honored for 2021.
The designation acknowledges member institutions that have multidisciplinary skull base surgery teams that include physicians in a variety of specialties, treating patients through a team approach. It is based on having at least one member in an NASBS core specialty such as otolaryngology, rhinology or neuro-otology; one member in an NASBS core specialty such as neurosurgery or neuroradiology; and two members in NASBS non-core specialties such as ophthalmology, radiology, radiation oncology, oral maxillo-facial surgery, head and neck reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery, endocrinology, pathology or medical oncology.
The UC Skull Base Program, led by Norberto Andaluz, MD, professor in the Department of Neurosurgery, was established in 1983 and provides care for complex skull base conditions affecting the nerves, bones and tissues between the brain and neck, throat, ears, nose and eyes. It is based at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute.
