A large cancer institute located in a desirable Florida coastal location is currently seeking a skull base fellowship trained neurosurgeon to join its team. The team is excited to welcome someone who has an interest in endoscopic skull base to help develop this niche. Candidates should be comfortable with most cranial cases including cerebrovascular, awake craniotomies, AVMs. The new skull base neurosurgeon will partner with the existing neuro-oncology neurosurgeon to help grow the neuro-oncology program. Currently the skull base cases are being handled by the University of Miami and there is a tremendous opportunity to capture these cases. Case mix will be flexible and someone can have a full cranial practice or incorporate spine, depending on their interests. A bilingual candidate who can speak Spanish would be a plus.
