The pituitary is the "master control gland" that makes hormones affecting growth and the functions of other glands in the body.

Overview

Surgery is the most common treatment to remove a tumor from the pituitary gland. We may also recommend radiation and drug therapy. Our surgical oncologists use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, which can minimize your pain and recovery time. Our radiation oncology team may perform radiation therapy to kill or shrink cancer cells, while minimizing the effect on other organs. You may also receive medicine to control your adrenal gland.
