The Pituitary Center at Barrow Neurological Institute offers continuing education conferences every month that seek to expand knowledge about neuroendocrine conditions like Cushing’s disease, Acromegaly, Pituitary Adenomas, and other pituitary related disorders.

“Pregnancy and Pituitary Disorders: Challenges in Diagnosis and Management  was presented at the May 2014 conference by Dr. Karyne Vinales, an endocrinology fellow who is highly respected for her work in this field. Keep in mind this was intended for an audience of medical professionals, so if you don’t understand some of the language used in the talk you can post your questions here.

Last week Dr. William White joined our support group meeting and talked about the decision-making process in determining when it’s time to move forward with surgery for a pituitary tumor. Unfortunately, we were unable to record his presentation, but the discussion that followed was engaging and inspired many patients to share their personal stories.

The audience made several suggestions of topics for future meetings including psychiatric issues and radiation therapy for pituitary disorders. Follow us on this blog for information regarding upcoming support group meetings. Suggestions for other topics are greatly appreciated.
