We perform minimally invasive pituitary surgery to remove tumors found within the pituitary gland.
How we treat pituitary tumors.
Minimally Invasive Endoscopy Transnasal Transphenoidal Pituitary Surgery
Pituitary adenomas are benign tumors that grow from the pituitary gland. These tumors can cause hormone and vision problems if left untreated. Tumor removal often restores vision and normal hormone balance.
A transnasal (nose) approach to tumor removal uses an endoscope placed through the natural passage from the nostrils to the base of the sphenoid sinus, and to the pituitary area. No incision is required. Endoscopes provide improved visualization, allowing the surgeon to see all areas and around corners. This helps facilitate complete removal of abnormal tissue while preserving the gland.
Patients achieve a better cosmetic result and experience less post-operative pain. Most patients are discharged within 24-48 hours.
