Together, we provide the highest quality care.
Early Symptoms and Treatment
Pituitary diseases can manifest in various ways. Some present with compression symptoms like headaches, visual disturbances, and weakness. Others exhibit symptoms related to excess hormone secretion, such as menstrual irregularities, breast changes, and sexual dysfunction. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, and No Wait Surgery ensures prompt intervention.
Tailored Treatment Plans
No Wait Surgery’s Pituitary Council discusses treatment plans, tailoring them to each patient’s needs. Prolactinomas typically begin with drug therapy, while acromegaly, Cushing’s diseases, and rare TSH-secreting tumors often require surgery. We consider factors like tumor size, patient age, comorbidities, and surgical risks for the best outcomes.
Transsphenoidal Surgery: A Safe Approach
Our preferred method for pituitary surgery is transsphenoidal, accessed through the base of the skull, avoiding brain contact and minimizing risks. Microscopic and endoscopic techniques are used, with endoscopic surgery offering superior outcomes for larger tumors.
Preparation and Success
Prior to transsphenoidal surgery, patients undergo necessary assessments and medication adjustments. Success rates range from 60-90%, depending on tumor characteristics, hospital equipment, and surgeon expertise.
Low Risks, High Expertise
No Wait Surgery minimizes risks through frequent procedures. Complications are rare but can include temporary conditions like excessive drinking and urination. Major complications are exceedingly rare, with a low mortality rate of approximately 0.1%. Hospital stays are typically short.
