Dr. Little will be discussing what patients should expect before, during, and after surgery for pituitary tumors. Transsphenoidal surgery is the most commonly performed operation for pituitary tumors. Patients often have questions about how the procedure will be performed and what the recovery is like. Dr. LIttle will review what type of preparation is required, including laboratory testing and imaging studies. He will also discuss different surgical techniques and give you a glimpse into what it is like in the operating room. Finally, he will end by talking about the different stages of recovering from surgery ad answer the questions most commonly asked by patients.
