The pituitary is responsible for controlling and coordinating growth and development, organ function (kidneys, breasts and uterus), and gland function (thyroid, gonads and adrenal glands).

Endoscopic pituitary surgery, a minimally-invasive approach to remove a pituitary tumor, usually does not require a large incision. This procedure, using a thin-lighted tube and camera called an endoscope, is designed to reduce risk to injuring the brain by creating a small keyhole opening inside the nose in order to access the tumor. The neurosurgeon works jointly with a team of ENT/head and neck (ear, nose and throat) surgeons, plastic surgeons, neuro-oncologists and radiologists.
