Dr. Gail Rosseau, board-certified neurosurgeon and U.S. Surgeon General candidate, discusses the prevalence and most common symptoms related to pituitary tumors. Vision disturbances and symptoms related to the overproduction of hormones are two of the most serious symptoms which may require a surgical intervention. Surgery for pituitary tumors is performed through the nose using a small endoscope to extract the tumor with no visible incision. Surgery for pituitary tumors, in experienced hands such as Dr. Rosseaus, typically takes 2-3 hours and most patients stay in the hospital for 2-3 days.
