Pituitary Adenoma Care at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?
You receive services from a skilled team that offers medical treatments and pituitary tumor surgery. Our combined experience leads to appropriate care for common and complex cases. Highlights of our program include:
Nuvance Health is home to neurosurgeons who completed advanced training in skull base surgery. This knowledge enables them to safely navigate delicate structures at the bottom of the skull. This region includes the pituitary gland, spinal cord and tiny blood vessels.
Skull base surgeons work alongside other specialists, including ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors, endocrinologists and eye doctors (ophthalmologists). We are in regular communication, coordinating your care so you can focus on feeling better.
We use less-invasive techniques to take out pituitary tumors. Instead of removing a part of your skull (craniotomy), surgeons slide a long thin tube (endoscope) through the nostril. Advancing the endoscope past an opening at the back of the nose enables us to access the tumor with less disruption to healthy tissue.
The team discusses your case to determine the therapies that are right for you. For small, nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas, we may recommend regular monitoring. If the pituitary tumor is causing symptoms, medications or surgery may be necessary.
