The spectrum is complemented by the treatment of head and neck tumors (functional and minimally invasive interventions, laser surgery and plastic reconstructive surgery), diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses (microscopic and endoscopic techniques, intraoperative navigation) and skull base pathologies. The department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Timo Stöver.
