My 73 year old mother was just diagnosed with a pituitary gland tumor
the size of a golf ball (determined from MRI). She is scheduled for
surgery next week with a neurosurgeon who has only had 10 other patients
in the last two years with this condition. He plans on gong through her
nose for removal. My concern is that this surgeon may not have enough
experience with this procedure. I realize pituitary gland tumors are not
that common, but should I be concerned that this doctor has only treated 10?
