Surgery is often the main treatment for people with pituitary tumors. The goal is to take out all of the tumor. In some cases, chemotherapy, certain medicines, or radiation may be used before surgery. This is done to shrink the tumor and make it easier to remove.
Types of surgery used to treat pituitary tumors
Pituitary tumor surgery may be done in 2 ways:
Transsphenoidal surgery. This is the most common surgery used to remove pituitary tumors. It’s done through a small cut behind the upper lip or below the cartilage that divides the two sides of the nose. The surgeon uses long, thin tools to make a hole through the bone at the back of the nasal passage. This is done to get to the pituitary gland. The tumor is then removed. In this surgery, no part of the brain is touched. And there’s no scar that anyone can see. Another option may be to put a very tiny camera on the end of a long, thin, flexible tube (endoscope). The tube is put into the nose and through a hole made in the back wall of the sinus to see the pituitary gland. Long, thin tools can then be used through the normal passages of the nose to remove the tumor.
Craniotomy. This type of surgery may be needed if the tumor is very large, or has spread to nearby nerves or the brain. To do this, the surgeon has to get access to the brain by removing a piece of the skull. The surgeon then works between and below parts of the brain to take out the tumor. This part of the surgery is done using a microscope or an endoscope to clearly see the tumor and nearby structures, like blood vessels and nerves.
