UT Southwestern Medical Center offers expert and compassionate care for all disorders of the adrenal gland, pancreas, pituitary, thyroid, and parathyroid glands.
UTSW is one of the leading centers in the United States for performing adrenalectomies using minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. Advantages of the laparoscopic technique include decreased postoperative pain, a shorter hospital stay, and a quicker return to normal activities.
The average length of the hospital stay is two or three days compared to a week or more with a traditional, open surgical technique.
We offer advanced care and treatment for neuroendocrine cancer, including carcinoid tumors, Merkel cell carcinoma, and neuroendocrine carcinomas.
Depending on your specific condition, our specialists provide effective treatments that may involve chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgical procedures to suppress or regulate the body’s production of hormones.
