How Should I Choose My Surgeon? February 3, 2014

Posted by mvarlan in Medicine and Health, Pituitary Disease, Uncategorized.

I often find patients in pursuit of the latest surgical procedure or technological advancement that has been discussed in new reports or blogs.

Although new technology and surgical techniques often provide enhanced patient care and faster recovery, a superior outcome is not guaranteed. Patients today have an abundance of information available to help them find the best medical care.  It is essential, however, to validate the source of your research.  The expertise of your medical team, including the neurosurgeon and the endocrinologist, is crucial to a speedy and uncomplicated recovery.

Seeking treatment at a facility which is a Center of Excellence in pituitary disorders will ensure they have the ability to offer the full array of treatment options for your condition. When you receive a recommendation for treatment from a Center of Excellence you can be assured that you are receiving the option best suited for your condition and overall health rather than restricted to the expertise of a surgeon or facility with limited resources.

The Barrow Pituitary Center is the oldest and most experienced facility in the Southwest offering patient-centered care to individuals requiring treatment for complex pituitary disorders. The range of symptoms that patients with pituitary disorders suffer from is broad and the consequence of hormonal and neurological complications can severely diminish one’s quality of life. Our physicians, including Drs. William White, Andrew Little, and Laura Knecht, understand the value of a “medical home” for patients and provide ongoing neurological and endocrine care throughout one’s lifetime.

Barrow is one of the few institutions throughout the country that can offer such comprehensive services. This creates a reputation for Barrow as a “Center of Excellence” for pituitary disorders.
