Pituitary Surgery and Treatment

Treatment Options

Surgery to remove the affected gland is the mainstay of treatment for pituitary tumors. Typical kinds of surgeries are:

Stanford surgeons have extensive experience operating on patients with pituitary disease, particularly in managing complex cases of disease. Intraoperative endoscopy, an innovative technique which has dramatically increased the ability of the neurosurgeon to achieve more complete tumor excision, is available for larger tumors (macroadenomas).

Our medical staff of neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, neuro-otologists, head and neck surgeons, endocrinologists, and radiation oncologists coordinate advanced medical and surgical care, including radiosurgery and skull base surgery for patients with these tumors.
