Pituitary and Neuroendocrine Center

The UM Pituitary and Neuroendocrine Center provides timely evaluation and treatment of patients with disorders of the pituitary gland and surrounding area of the brain. During their first visit, patients are seen by both a senior endocrinologist and neurosurgeon. Most pertinent laboratory studies can be done at the time of the first visit.

The clinic's address and information on appointments is on the make an appointment web page.&brsp;  View the Provider List (this link opens onto the UMHS website).

This clinic evaluates patients with acromegaly and Cushing's disease, as well as patients with prolactin secreting or non-secreting tumors of the pituitary. Patients with craniopharyngiomas, meningiomas, dermoids, epidermoids, chordomas or other lesions in the region of the pituitary are evaluated and treated in this center.

Treatments available include surgery tumor resection (transsphenoidal and skull base surgery), radiosurgery, radiation therapy and every type of medical management.
