It was here where in the late 1960s and 70s his teacher, Prof. Walter Messerklinger, started what would become a revolution in diagnosis and treatment of nasal and sinuses diseases: Rigid endoscopy, FESS being the best known off-spring of this development. Prof. Stammberger today, is considered one of the world’s leading experts in the field of endoscopic sinus and skull base surgery. He has helped through numerous publications, books as well as lectures and teaching courses on all continents, to spread the knowledge and expertise and push the surgical frontiers.In the late 1990s, he and his ENT-team have started close co- operation with their neurosurgical partners, establishing the „Interdisciplinary Skull Base Unit“ of the Medical University Graz. Their transnasal concept of “Endoscopic Rhino-NeuroSurgery” has made the Graz Skull Base Group a leader in the field and a national and international excellence and referral centre.
