WOW, I had no idea that he had moved to another state. I'm devastated. Dr. Oyesiku, I am so thankful for the God given ability for youto be able to help those with all types of brain tumors. I've had 2 brain tumors surgeries in your care and I am so thankful and excited for your move. I just hate to see you go so far away. God speed. God has another life for you to save. You have been a blessing to me.

Dr. Oyesiku performed surgery for my pituitary tumor and he worked with Dr. Salores. My surgery was a success and he was wonderful before and after my surgery. Keep my family informed and he has the best bedside manner. I could not have asked for anyone better than him. He has an extensive resume.

Specialist in pituitary tumors. I saw him recently to follow-up on surgery I had 9 years ago (regularly-scheduled follow-ups), and he explained everything very patiently.

Dr. Oyesiku performed Transsphenoidal surgery to remove pituitary tumor in Nov. '16. I cannot say enough about him & his colleagues. He was professional, explained everything; drawing diagrams on paper. He performed the 5 hour surgery- incredibly delicate- and I had a great result. His team included ENT surgeon (Dr. Solares), endocrinologist (Dr. Ioachimescu), neuro ophtho (Dr. Biousse)- all wonderful. All follow up appointments were set up. I was confident that I was in great hands.
