The pituitary gland is a pea-sized gland located in the skull, just below the brain. It’s called the “master gland” because it releases eight different types of hormones that control the activity of other glands, and can affect a myriad of body processes including growth, reproduction, lactation, metabolism, hydration and stress responses. Serious consequences can occur when the pituitary gland secretes too little or too much of a hormone. Seeking accurate diagnosis and effective treatment is essential in caring for pituitary disorders.
The board-certified endocrinologists at UT Health provide reliable diagnosis and comprehensive treatment for all pituitary disorders.
Our patients benefit from on-site lab testing and advanced imaging and scanning capabilities which provide the quick, accurate results used to develop effective treatment plans that are tailored to each patient’s specific health needs.
Our customized treatment plans could include medicine, hormone therapies and surgical removal of tumors affecting the pituitary gland.
