Doctors Who Treat Acromegaly

Acromegaly may be treated with hormone-suppressing drugs or with radiation to shrink a pituitary tumor, but first-line treatment is surgery by neurosurgeons and otolaryngological (ENT) surgeons. Removing the pituitary tumor is usually a cure for acromegaly. (More about Pituitary and Skull Base Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine.)
