Pituitary tumors are generally noncancerous and do not spread beyond the pituitary glands. They can however produce significant side effects, including vision loss, hormonal changes, sexual dysfunction, weight loss or gain; nausea and vomiting, watery nasal drainage, headaches, constipation, low blood pressure and body hair loss.
Best in Care
The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by pituitary tumors. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that identify and remove tumors with immense accuracy. Using laser technology, endoscopes and 3-D brain mapping, our surgeons isolate the pituitary tumor and preserve the adjacent healthy brain tissue, nerves and blood vessels. This minimizes the possibility of brain damage, stroke and blindness.
