Pituitary diseases that are not sufficiently recognized by society may cause irreparable consequences if treatment is delayed. Pituitary diseases are usually subtle. Since a significant part of the symptoms can also be seen in many other diseases, it is a waste of time until the diagnosis is made. Pituitary diseases may also rarely lead to a life-threatening emergency. Thanks to the advances in imaging methods and laboratory techniques, as well as improvements in treatment, more successful results are achieved in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the pituitary gland.
A team of endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-radiologists, neuro-pathologists, neuro-ophthalmologists, radiation oncologists, anesthesiologists, and auxiliary health personnel and adequate technological infrastructure are required in order to achieve the desired results from the treatment.
Yeditepe University Pituitary Diseases Clinic, which continues its studies on pituitary diseases, carries out training programs on the subject as well as early diagnosis and treatment of diseases. The clinic also works in conjunction with international organizations.
Multidisciplinary Group Meetings
Yeditepe University Pituitary Diseases Clinic continues to serve not only patients but also physicians. Every week, multidisciplinary meetings are held at Yeditepe University Kosuyolu Hospital, where pituitary diseases and pituitary tumors are evaluated in all aspects.
Physicians can attend these meetings with the cases they want to be discussed.
