Sheffield Skull Base Group

Sheffield Skull Base Group is a multi-disciplinary team dedicated to the evaluation and treatment of patients with disorders of the skull base.

Examples of such disorders include acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma), meningioma, pituitary adenoma, and ascending head & neck cancers of the paranasal sinuses, temporal bone, and parotid.

Sheffield Skull Base Group is unique within the NHS in that it provides a comprehensive skull base service on site including an established Gamma Knife, complex craniofacial resective surgery, and minimally invasive nasal endoscopic approaches.

The group runs inter-speciality joint clinics including lateral skull base/acoustic neuroma, pituitary, NF2, and anterior skull base. The group supports the running of a Skull Base MDT Meeting and a Pituitary MDT Meeting, each of which run twice a month to discuss individual patient cases. The focus of the group is on patient choice and quality of life.
