Pituitary surgery: what are the factors that determine it.

Podcast:  In this podcast we discuss the indications for pituitary surgery.  What are the factors that make the procedure necessary?  We ask Dr. Blevins how he decides to recommend it.  When does he treat a patient with medications instead of proceeding with surgery and the many considerations that go into recommending pituitary surgery.


As follow-up to this podcast we recommend two additional articles
