Skull Base Team Approach

Using a multi-disciplinary team approach, we provide our patients the expertise of neurosurgeons, neuro-otologists, rhinologists, head and neck surgeons, plastic surgeons, orbital surgeons, neuro-ophthalmologists, neurointerventionalists, radiation oncologists, neuro-oncologists, neurologists, geneticists, and endocrinologists. Patients also receive compassionate care from specialists in physical therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy, and rehabilitation. Our skull base team aims to safely remove the skull base tumorwhile preserving neurological function with the best cosmetic outcome. Dr. Liu collaborates with specialists from the Division of Otolaryngology including Dr. Soly Baredes, Dr. Robert Jyung, Dr. Jean Anderson Eloy, and Dr. Eric Cohen. 

Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery
Dr. Liu and Dr. Jean Anderson Eloy, Director of Rhinology and Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, lead the endoscopic skull base team where intracranial tumors located underneath the base of the brain can be safely removed throughthe nostrils using cutting edge endoscopes. This surgical innovation avoids the need to make an incision on the head or face and avoids opening the skull with a craniotomy, resulting in quicker recovery and shorter hospital stays. Large invasive pituitary tumor removed endoscopically through the nose in a patient with decreased vision. Postoperative MRI shows complete removal with improved visual function in the patient. Pituitary gland was preserved.

Acoustic Neuroma Program
The Acoustic Neuroma Program, led by Dr. Liu and Dr. Robert Jyung, Director of Neuro-Otology, is affiliated with The Neurofibromatosis Center of New Jersey and offers comprehensive care for patients with acoustic neuromas (vestibular schwannomas) and other skull base tumors. Patients are given state-of-the-art treatments including hearing preservation approaches, keyhole laser microsurgery, endoscopic-assisted surgery, and stereotactic radiosurgery.
