Spindle Cell Oncocytoma

Spindle cell oncocytoma is an extremely rare tumor found in the pituitary gland of adults.  It can cause visual impairment. Although benign, the mass can grow back after removal.

Best in Care

The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the-art facility for adults and children affected by spindle cell oncocytoma. We specialize in minimally invasive treatments that identify and remove the tumors with immense accuracy. These advanced techniques pinpoint affected tissue with millimeter precision, enabling our surgeons to remove the tumor or reduce its size. Minimally invasive endoscopic approaches allow removal through the nasal cavity. Recovery is quicker, because no incision is made.
