Center For Skull Base Surgery at UAMS

UAMS Medical Center is the patient care network of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.  The Center combines the resources of the University Hospital, Arkansas Children's Hospital, the Arkansas Cancer Research Center, the Outpatient Center, the Harvey & Bernice Jones Eye Institute, the Donald W. Reynolds Center on Aging, and a number of other associated clinics to offer a wide range of medical expertise.

UAMS Medical Center is committed to providing a skull base treatment center with the best inpatient care and training for skull base surgery.

To those ends, in 1993, the Center for Skull Base Surgery was instituted under the direction of Ossama Al-Mefty, M.D., Chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery, and James Y. Suen, M.D., Chairman of the Department of Otolaryngology.  Both surgeons are world-renowned for their expertise in skull base surgery and the treatment of head and neck tumors respectively.
