Outpatient Services

Target Pituitary

We offer:

  • Consultations and second opinions
  • Comprehensive treatment and management
  • Treatment plans carried out in partnership with referring physicians

Patient evaluations include comprehensive office visits, complete hormone testing and imaging studies.

Patient cases are reviewed during our weekly Neuroendocrine Clinical Conference attended by our endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and radiation oncologists. The team develops a comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic plan, which is then implemented at MGH or shared with the patient and/or referring physician, at the patient's request..

  • Neuroendocrinologists are skilled in the diagnostic evaluation of these complex disorders, administer replacement hormones and are experts in the medical management of pituitary tumors
  • Experienced pituitary neurosurgeons provide expert surgical care
  • Radiation oncologists help plan and administer any necessary pituitary radiation therapy
    • Mass General is one of the few hospitals in the country to offer proton beam therapy to treat pituitary lesions. This non-invasive, high-precision radiosurgical technique treats the tumor while minimizing damage to surrounding areas.
  • Neurologists treat headaches, seizures and hypothalamic syndromes
  • Clinical nurses perform endocrine testing, provide patient education, including teaching self-administration of medications requiring injection, and also monitor ongoing research projects
