Skull Base Laboratory

Shaping the future of neurosurgery

Surgical approaches to the skull base require a deep understanding of neuroanatomy. Here at the Northwestern Skull Base Lab in downtown Chicago, we give residents, fellows, and practicing surgeons an opportunity to work with highly trained faculty using state-of-the-art technologies and hands-on dissection, emphasizing a comprehensive and translational approach using real surgical techniques that better equip trainees with the skills they need in the operating room.

Our Advanced Training Course in Open and Endoscopic Neurosurgery is back, March 8-10
