Dr. Galicich is behind the times with pituitary surgery and caused me much unneeded pain and suffering. There is an endonasal endoscopic technique that involves an Ent and Neurosurgeon that I encourage you to look into. It is minimally invasive. I wish someone would have told me before I trusted an "expert." Be your own advocate, even the bottom of the class is called doctor at the end of the day.

Dr. Galicich did a back surgery on me. He is so nice and easy to talk with. I am so impressed with the office of Neurosurgical Associates.
