DR. G.SUNDHAR KRISHNAN

Dr. G. Sundhar Krishnan has been recently conferred Ph D in “ENDOSCOPIC SKULL BASE SURGERY” by the Dr. M .G. R. Medical University in October2007

The nose is gateway for the sinuses,orbit,optic canal,lacrimal sac and anterior skull base. The nasal endoscope has revolutionized the field of ENT as well as the neighbouring areas namely – neuro surgery and ophthalmology. It gives the patient the advantages of natural hole scar less surgery with quick recovery.

Dr. Sundhar Krishnan who breathes ENT has dedicated himself to exploit the full potential and increase its applications. His aim is to tackle any disease of the head that needs surgical intervention by endoscopies through natural opening of face such as nose, mouth or only by a keyhole thereby doing away with major opening of skull or orbit rendering aesthetic satisfaction to the patient.

He has started Endoscopic Pituitary Tumor removal and CSF rhinorrhoea management about 10 years ago. He has performed over 200 pituitary cases including those with supra and parasellar extensions and over 50 cases of CSF Rhinnorhoea. He discharges them safely in a day or two cutting costs to one third. He has also done the world’s largest series of Endoscopic ear surgeries. He has many firsts in the endoscopic management of challenging cases sucessfully like

  • Secondary papilloedema by optic nerve sheath fenestration,
  • Optic nerve schwannoma with intra cranial extension,
  • Orbito cerebro rhino fungal disease {no need for craniotomy or exenteration of eye},
  • C.S.F. otorhinorrhoea,
  • Juvenile naso pharyngeal angiofibroma with skull base and intra cranial extension,
  • Removal of benign Para pharyngeal tumors and
  • Modified lacrimal sac surgery with almost 100% success including re surgery cases, traumatic cases and congenital cases.
