  1. Transsphenoidal Surgery Is Safe and Effective Treatment for Cushing’s Disease

    Surgical removal of tumors in the pituitary gland of the brain remains the gold standard for Cushing’s disease treatment.

    Transsphenoidal surgery (TSS) usually leads to good remission rates ranging from 68-95%, depending on the location and type of tumor, the neurosurgeon’s expertise, follow-up period, and the definition of remission.

    Today, TSS consists of surgery directed through the nose to get to the bottom of the skull, where the pituitary gland is located. The tumor is reached via the nasal cavity with no need for incisions on the face.
