Neal Godse

Assistant Professor


As a rhinologist and skull base surgeon, I focus on the treatment of patients with a variety of diseases of the nose, orbit, paranasal sinuses, and anterior skull base.  These diseases include allergy, acute and chronic inflammatory sinus disease, CSF leaks, sinonasal tumors, sinonasal cancers, and, in conjunction with my neurosurgery partners, diseases of the pituitary gland and neurovasculature of the anterior skull base.  I value the ability to help patients improve their quality of life and to help them navigate the complex problems that can affect these parts of the body.
