Pituitary Tumor Surgery Atlanta GA

Pituitary tumor surgery requires an exceptional level of precision and skill in order to do the best possible job of tumor removal, with the lowest possible risk of complications. Dr. Jim Robinson, M.D., is one of the leading pituitary tumor surgeons in Atlanta, Georgia, and throughout the region, providing patients with advanced surgical treatment options for pituitary adenomas and other related conditions.

Board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery, Dr. Robinson has focused his career on the treatment of brain and skull base tumors for more than 20 years. Throughout this time, he has helped hundreds of patients find relief from pituitary tumor symptoms, while producing survival outcomes that drastically exceed expectations and with very low risk of complications such as cerebrospinal fluid leak.

Not only is Dr. Robinson highly experienced in the field of pituitary tumor surgery, but he also specializes in minimally invasive (endoscopic) procedures that typically have lower complication rates and shorter recovery times than traditional operations. Dr. Robinson performs the following surgeries for patients from Atlanta and the surrounding areas:

  • Minimally invasive craniotomies, in which tumors are removed through small incisions on the side of the skull
  • Minimally invasive, endoscopically assisted transsphenoidal tumor resections, in which tumors are removed through the nostrils to eliminate the need for traditional surgical incisions
  • Gamma Knife® radiosurgery, in which tumors that cannot be removed with traditional surgical methods are treated to control them in terms of growth or hormone overproduction by the convergence of 200 highly focused radiation beams in an outpatient procedure

To provide each patient with the highest level of care, Dr. Robinson takes an individualized approach to pituitary tumor surgery. He evaluates a number of patient-specific factors to determine which procedure offers the most potential benefits for each individual, then coordinates with other medical providers to ensure his patients receive the comprehensive, multidisciplinary care they deserve.

Dr. Robinson not only offers world-class medical care, but also extensive emotional support. He truly cares about each patient and their personal outcome, and this is evident in the way he approaches pituitary tumor surgery. For his extensive medical experience and outstanding bedside manner, the Consumers’ Research Council of America has named Dr. Robinson one of America’s Top Surgeons.
