Skull Base Neurosurgery

Diseases of the skull base include benign and malignant tumors, infections, birth defects and traumatic head injuries. Treatment is highly complex because tumors and lesions in this area are hard to reach. Surgery often is required to restore function to the network of nerves, arteries and sensing organs that enable us to see, hear, speak and move.

Among the few U.S. medical centers with a surgical team experienced in these complex procedures, Sarasota Memorial Hospital-Sarasota Campus offers the safest, least invasive and most advanced diagnostics available, as well as a full range of minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Our Team

Under the direction of Ryan Glasser, MD, and Jack Wazen, MD, our multidisciplinary team includes specialists in neurosurgery, head and neck surgery, sinus and skull base surgery, ear disorders (otology / neurotology), neuroradiology, pituitary disorders (endocrinology) and radiation oncology. Supporting disciplines include physical rehabilitation, occupational therapy and intensivists.

Our team of doctors meets regularly to discuss complicated cases and develop a treatment plan and protocols customized to each patient’s needs and condition. For patients requiring physical rehabilitation after surgery, hospital-based and outpatient neuro-rehabilitation programs are available.
