The pituitary gland is a tiny organ responsible for creating important hormones that are crucial to our overall health.
These hormones help to drive sex hormones in men and women, stimulate the adrenal and thyroid glands, and regulate growth hormones in children, among other things.
Duke doctors offer treatment for the spectrum of pituitary disorders, including:
Our endocrinologists are skilled at diagnosing complicated pituitary disorders and creating effective treatment plans for each patient.
Our doctors are experts in the medical management of pituitary gland disorders and work closely with patients and their primary care doctors to ensure medication is effectively controlling symptoms of the disorder.
In addition to medical management of pituitary disorders, our endocrinologists are trained to recognize when a patient would benefit from surgical intervention.
We work closely with experienced surgeons to provide timely and efficient referrals when surgery is needed and offer comprehensive perioperative care for patients who undergo pituitary gland surgery.
On Friday of each week, patients with pituitary disorders can be seen as part of a specialized program where the doctors focus all their care on this patient population.
