Description of Clinical Expertise

Dr. Adappa has been on faculty at the University of Pennsylvania since 2010. He is in the division of Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery as both the co-fellowship director of the Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery Fellowship as well as the Surgical Director of the AERD center. His specific focus included revision sinus surgery, sinus cancers treatment, endoscopic csf leak repairs, and he also works closely with the neurosurgery department on endoscopic anterior cranial base tumor resection including pituitary tumors, craniopharyngiomas, rathke's cleft cysts, and meningiomas. Dr. Adappa is an associate editor of the "Atlas of Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery" and has published over 70 peer-reviewed papers.
