Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am U.S. trained,
Board Certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear of your Acromegaly and pituitary adenoma. John Hopkins is an excellent hospital and the treatment there is the best. The procedure you are faced with is removal of a benign tumor that is in your pituitary gland and it is not cancerous. The recovery is usually of short duration. Your doctor can make the referral to their Neurosurgical Team with a telephone call or letter describing your condition and the studies that have already been completed. The referral can be accomplished very quickly and easily.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Some additional thoughts. There is medication that can shrink Pituitary tumors so surgery can be avoided, but it is dependant on the size of the tumor.
Have you discussed treatment with your doctor?
