Pituitary (Neuroendocrine) Program
Prompt, World-Class Treatment for Pituitary Tumors
At UVA, we see more patients with pituitary tumors than any hospital anywhere else in the world – over 500 new patients each year. For more than 20 years, we've led the field in developing new treatments for pituitary tumors.
Pituitary gland tumors aren't cancer, but they do require timely, effective treatment. Whether you need medication or surgery, we offer care by some of the best pituitary doctors in the world.
The pituitary gland makes hormones that affect the way many parts of the body work. It also controls hormones made by other glands in the body. When it comes to pituitary gland tumors, 99.5% are benign and curable.
