Pituitary tumors are abnormal growths that develop in the pituitary gland. Most of these tumors are non-cancerous (benign), although in rare instances they can be cancerous (malignant). Whether malignant or benign, however, it’s important for patients to seek prompt medical attention, with brain surgery as one potential option. The board-certified surgeons at Southeastern Neurosurgical Specialists make it possible for patients from Atlanta, Georgia, and the surrounding areas to access leading-edge treatments for pituitary tumors and other conditions of the brain. Surgical technique and the potential risk of complications vary widely between different surgeons.
