Pituitary surgery, also known as transsphenoidal surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves removing an abnormal portion of the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is a small, pea-sized gland located at the base of the brain. It plays a critical role in the endocrine system by producing and releasing hormones that regulate many bodily functions, including growth, reproduction, metabolism, and the production of other hormones.
Pituitary surgery is typically used to treat a variety of conditions that affect the pituitary gland, including tumors, cysts, and other growths. In some cases, the surgery may be performed to remove a portion of the gland that is producing too much of a particular hormone.
