Pituitary Tumor Treatment

Expertise at UVA

Pituitary gland tumors aren't cancer, but they do require timely, effective treatment. Whether you need medication or surgery, we offer care from pituitary doctors who are experts in the field.

The pituitary gland makes hormones that affect the way many parts of the body work. It also controls hormones made by other glands in the body. When it comes to pituitary gland tumors, over 99 percent are benign and curable.
