Clinical interests

Dr. Klatt-Cromwell’s research interests include clinical outcomes for endoscopic skull base patients including those with benign or malignant tumors, and assessing endoscopic reconstruction options for skull base cases including the development of new techniques.  In the future, she would like to explore the molecular biology of skull base tumors to improve surgical approaches, postoperative management, and use of adjuvant therapy.
