The pituitary gland sits roughly in the center of the head, behind the air spaces of the nasal passages. Benign tumors involving the pituitary gland (pituitary adenoma) often require surgical treatment. The use of the endoscope, a long thin camera, allows for increased visualization in comparison to traditional techniques. The endoscopic technique also allows for complete tumor resection without the need for a skin incision. Dr. Woodall works in conjunction with an ENT partner, who assists with pre-operative, intra-operative, and post-operative care of the pituitary adenoma patient. He will also have an endocrinologist (hormone doctor) and ophthalmologist (eye doctor) involved in the pre- and post-op assessments.
Dr. Woodall has the skill, care, and experience to ensure you receive the treatment you need—without leaving the Athens area. Contact our office today.
