    There is now considerable evidence that the clinical outcome in patients with acromegaly can be improved very substantially by means of better surgical expertise and effective medical therapies used in a flexible and innovative manner. Medical therapy alone in patients who have not undergone surgery or radiotherapy (primary medical therapy) offers the prospect of near normalisation of GH/IGF-I levels together with substantial tumour shrinkage in a significant number of patients.
