- Clinical interest for patients
I am interested in Rhinology, and Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery and I have subspecialty training in both areas.
Read about one patient's experience with Dr. Ramakrishnan and the innovative endoscopic or endo-nasal orbital surgery Dr. Ramakrishnan performed in this Channel 7 News Article.
- Research interest for patients
My research focuses on Inflammatory mechanisms of chronic rhinosinusitis, nasal polyps, and cystic fibrosis, Microbiology of chronic sinusitis in unique patient populations, Minimally-invasive surgical techniques for sinus, orbit, and skull base surgery and New techniques for reconstruction of skull base defects
My Clinical Research focuses on Molecular analysis of nasal polyp tissue from patients with cystic fibrosis (NJH & UC Denver), Clinical outcomes of medical and surgical management of chronic rhinosinusitis in patients with cystic fibrosis (NJH & UC Denver), T-cell differentiation in chronic rhinosinusitis and cystic fibrosis (NJH & UC Denver), Novel assessment of microbiology and topical therapies in chronic rhinosinusitis (UC Denver), Innovative approaches to minimally invasive orbital surgery (UC Denver) and New techniques of skull base reconstruction (UC Denver).
