The pituitary gland is a small, pea-sized gland found at the base of the brain. This tiny glad is often referred to as the ‘master gland’ because it is responsible for producing hormones that regulate critical functions in the body, including blood pressure, metabolism, growth, pain relief, and the thyroid gland.
The USF Health Integrated Pituitary Disorders Center offers patients multidisciplinary evaluation and treatment of these complex conditions, tapping into the expertise of endocrinologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, and neurosurgeons to give every patient a comprehensive evaluation and management of pituitary tumors and disorders.
Surgical treatment plans may include:
• Endoscopic Transsphenoidal surgery
• State-of-the-art Cyberknife Radiosurgery
These treatments may be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with other non-surgical treatments.
