Rhinology, Allergy, & Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery

The UNC ENT Division of Rhinology, Allergy, & Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery offers a complete range of services for medical and surgical management of diseases affecting the sinuses and skull base including sinusitis, allergy, and skull base tumors.

Why Choose UNC for endoscopic skull base surgery?

Many tumors of the skull base can be successfully removed using an endoscopic minimally invasive approach. Minimally invasive procedures typically result in shorter hospital stays, decreased surgical complications, and faster recovery. Our ENT surgeons are part of a multidisciplinary team consisting of other surgical and nonsurgical specialties at the UNC Skull Base Center. Each member of the UNC skull base team uses their surgical expertise and knowledge when treatment plans are discussed in order to provide the best treatment possible for each skull base surgery patient.

UNC’s Skull Base Center is one of only a few in the country that offers expertise in both endoscopic and traditional transfacial or transcranial skull base surgery.


Why Choose UNC for allergy and sinus treatment?

The UNC ENT Division of Rhinology, Allergy, and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery offers a complete range of services for management of diseases and conditions of the nasal cavity and sinuses. Our allergy services include surgical management of nasal and sinus tumors, nasal airway surgery, and sinus surgery. Recent advances in minimally invasive techniques developed by UNC ENT surgeons now allow for minimally invasive surgery for many tumors of the nose and sinuses. Our surgical team provides the highest level of patient care and surgical expertise, ensuring the best possible outcome for our patients.
