The Pituitary Tumor Treatment Team at UNC believes strongly that all patients benefit from a team approach to their care. UNC endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, neuroradiologists and neuroophthalmologists partner together to provide true multidisciplinary care for patients with pituitary tumors. The centerpiece for this is the Multidisciplinary Pituitary Clinic. Patients can come for a single visit, receive MRI and appropriate blood tests, and then see the endocrinologist and neurosurgeon together in a shared clinic. This weekly clinic provides patients with real-time convenient access to all of their specialists on a single day. Following the Pituitary Clinics, a multidisciplinary pituitary conference is held where all members of the treatment team, including the endocrinology, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, radiation and pathology, to discuss their cases.
Using this team approach, patients are directed to the type of care (medical, surgical, radiation, observation) that is most appropriate for their particular tumor.
Patients who would like to schedule an appointment should contact the Clinic Coordinator.
