Neuroendocrine and Pituitary Tumor Clinical Center

OHSU Neuroendocrine

Massachusetts General Hospital

Boston, Massachusetts

The Neuroendocrine and Pituitary Tumor Clinical Center provides a multidisciplinary approach to patients with pituitary and hypothalamic disorders. Endocrinologists, Neurologists, and Neurosurgeons and Radiation Oncologists participate in the management of such patients. Staff members hold faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School. The Center is a national referral center for the evaluation and treatment of pituitary tumors, recurrent pituitary adenomas, and tumors or disorders of the hypothalamic-pituitary region. The Center is ideally suited for the referral diagnosis and management of patients with pituitary tumors, including prolactinomas, Cushing's disease, acromegaly, nonfunctioning pituitary tumors, recurrent pituitary adenomas, and pituitary and hypothalamic disorders which lead to adrenal, thyroid, ovarian, or testicular deficiency. Patients can be referred for the development of a treatment plan in conjunction with their primary physician, for a second opinion, or for ongoing management by the Center physicians.

  • Endocrinologists in the Center are experienced in the chronic administration of replacement hormones and in the use of drugs which block hormone excess syndromes. They are experienced in the use of investigational drugs for the treatment of prolactin and growth hormone disorders. They have been at the forefront of medical therapy for pituitary disorders with the use of new dopamine agonists for prolactinomas and somatostatin analogues for acromegaly.

  • Neurosurgical involvement in the Center ensures prompt surgical intervention when necessary.

  • Input from the Department of Radiation Medicine facilitates the planning of therapy.

  • Neurologists are available for the pharmacological treatment of headaches, seizures, and hypothalamic syndromes.

  • The Neuroendocrine Clinical Nurse offers patient education, including teaching self-administration of medications requiring injection.
