Pituitary and Skull Base Conditions We Treat

Many of the skull base conditions we treat are related to the pituitary gland, which is not located in the brain itself but at the base of the skull. There are other tumors that may appear at the skull base near the pituitary gland, in an area called the sellar/parasellar region, but that are not technically pituitary tumors. These other tumors include 

In less common cases, a pituitary tumor may be an invasive adenoma or a carcinoma. Minimally invasive surgical techniques may be used to remove any of these tumors. Find out more about the skull base conditions our experts treat:
