Pituitary Clinic  at Augusta University Health

The Pituitary Clinic was established to meet the complex needs of our rapidly growing population of patients with:

  • sellar and parasellar lesions such as pituitary tumors
  • craniopharyngiomas
  • meningiomas
  • Rathke’s cleft cysts
  • other neuroendocrinologic disorders.

This multidisciplinary clinic provides same day evaluations to simplify care, increase access and convenience, while minimizing travel and confusion. 

In a single visit patients can undergo their imaging, if required, and meet with the specialists appropriate for their care.

All treatment options are available at Augusta University Health including:

  • medical endocrinology
  • complex imaging
  • interventional neurovascular surgery for petrosal sinus sampling or evaluation for embolization
  • minimally invasive surgery with 2-D and 3-D endoscopy
  • open cranial surgical resections
  • external beam conformal radiotherapy
  • single session Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery
  • multisession Gamma Knife radiosurgery with the Extend program.  The Augusta University Gamma Knife Center is one of ten centers in the U.S. that has the Extend technology.  With the Extend capability, we can treat larger tumors or tumors with closer association to the sellar and parasellar structures such as the optic nerves with much lower risk.
