Pituitary Tumor Surgery for Residents of Marietta, GA & Other Cities Throughout the Southeast United States
Surgery is one of the most common forms of pituitary tumor treatment. Although some people who are diagnosed with pituitary tumors do not require surgery right away, those who are experiencing pain or blurred vision as a result of nerve compression, or whose tumors are producing hormones, may opt for prompt surgical care. At Brain Expert, PC., Dr. Jim Robinson, MD., provides comprehensive surgical treatment to patients from Marietta, Georgia, and helps patients of all ages find the right treatment plans for their unique needs.
Dr. Robinson offers several forms of pituitary tumor surgery, including an advanced transsphenoidal procedure that does not require any external surgical incisions. Instead, during this procedure, small-scale instruments are inserted through the nostrils and sinuses, and the tumor is removed through the same passageway. This typically means:
- No visible scar
- Minimal complication rates, as brain tissue is not touched during the procedure
- A shorter recovery time than traditional, open-brain surgery
In addition to transsphenoidal pituitary tumor surgery, Dr. Robinson also specializes in craniotomies. These procedures, which involve a traditional incision and a more standard surgical approach, are often the best option for patients with larger and more complex tumors.
Dr. Robinson has been a neurosurgeon for more than 20 years, throughout which time he has handled many challenging cases. His exceptional level of expertise and precision allows him to produce outcomes that routinely exceed the national averages, while his compassionate bedside manner helps him connect with his patients on a personal level. Providing his patients with individualized treatment plans and complete postoperative support, Dr. Robinson is one of the most trusted brain tumor surgeons in the Marietta area.
