Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Batra I take care of patients with sinus problems, and I take care of patients with skull base problems. So whether somebody has chronic sinus disease, fungal sinusitis or has a skull base tumor, the types of surgical techniques that we employ are using the endoscope and then a variety of other instrumentation that's available to us. One of the key areas of my focus is taking care of patients that have sinus and skull base tumors. With the advances in technology - especially with endoscopy - now we can tackle these tumors, working through the nose, there's no incisions on the face, and often these patients can go home in a matter of days. We as surgeons may look at our surgical outcomes based on complications, but patients will measure the success of what you do based on their quality of life after you've done something to them. There's no question in my mind that our patients do better, in regards to their quality of life, after these procedures.

Dr. Batra is truly a wonderful physician and a world leader in his field. He restored my sinuses to health after a catalogue of previous failures at other facilities and prolonged suffering. He is a tremendous, gifted surgeon and cares deeply for all of his patients. I would thoroughly recommend Dr. Batra and the entire ENT team at RUSH.

Dr. Batra is a godsend. He is a great surgeon and a kind man. Cannot recommend him enough.

Dr. Batra was my doctor while he practiced at UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX. He was key in performing my skull biopsy for a very invasive tumor in my left skull and sinus cavity. It was a rare case of fibrosis dysplasya and not many people had even seen this before. I was so scared and he made me know he was going to get this diagnosed and treated. He became my coach to all the other doctors on my team. I miss him a great deal. Haven't found many doctors who care like that. What a gem.

dr. batra saved my life and i mean, literally. I was misdiagnosed with nasal polyps and went to the cleveland clinic, where he was practicing at the time, for a second opinion. it was not polyps, it was a rare cancer, esthesioneuroblastoma. eleven years later, i am here to tell the story. dr. batra moved twice and i once, since we first met in cleveland. but i always follow him. i wouldn't trust anybody else with my medical care.
