Office Address

Summary

  • Dr. Lee has a passion for minimally invasive ways to treat brain and skull base tumors. This passion is expressed as a commitment to endoscopic approaches to remove pituitary, clival, and skull-base tumors. Another expression of his interest in minimally invasive methods is his devotion to stereotactic radiosurgery, eg. "incision-less" brain surgery.

    In addition to brain tumors, Dr. Lee is committed to the comprehensive treatment of patients with craniofacial neuralgias, including trigeminal neuralgia, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, and hemifacial spasm. Dr. Lee uses minimally invasive surgical procedures including microvascular decompression (Jannetta procedure) and stereotactic radiosurgery to cure these disorders.
