Specialized, Comprehensive Care for Neuroendocrine Disorders

Neuroendocrinology is the medical subspecialty that focuses on the interactions between the nervous system and the endocrine system. Neuroendocrine disorders interfere with these interactions by causing either too many or too few hormones to be produced. These conditions can negatively impact metabolism and many other vital bodily functions.

UT Southwestern offers patients the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic services for the management of all types of neuroendocrine disorders.

Pituitary Diseases

The pituitary gland is a central element in the control of multiple endocrine functions. It integrates signals from the brain and the remainder of the body and releases hormones that regulate growth, adrenal function, gonadal function, thyroid function, and the excretion of water by the kidneys.

Pituitary function can be altered by a host of processes, resulting in conditions in which some or all of the components of the pituitary are increased or deficient. The UT Southwestern Pituitary Disease Clinic is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with diseases that alter the function of the pituitary gland.

Physicians in the Pituitary Disease Clinic work closely with providers in neurosurgery, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology at UT Southwestern to tailor the best treatments for the care of each patient, including those with pituitary tumors.

Patients are seen in the UT Southwestern Internal Medicine Subspecialty Clinic - Endocrinology by referral only.

Treatment for Neuroendocrine Disorders

The goal of treatment for neuroendocrine disorders is to regulate the body’s production of hormones. Treatments depend upon the specific conditions and severity and can include:

  • Medications
  • Surgery, including minimally invasive procedures
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
