Multi-disciplinary care for patients with pituitary disorders
In 2016, the Cape Town Pituitary Collaborative began treating patients with pituitary disease.
Individually, and as a team we are committed to providing patients the highest standard of care.
All of our doctors are specialists in their field with a keen interest in disorders of the pituitary.
The Cape Town Pituitary Collaborative specialises in treating diseases of the pituitary gland. Pituitary tumours, non-functioning adenomas, acromegaly, prolactinoma and Cushing disease. In addition other pituitary disorders such as craniopharyngiomas, Rathke's cleft cysts, diabetes insipidus, hypopituitarism and lymphocytic hypophysitis are also managed by the committed team.
Outpatient examination and evaluation of disorders affecting the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.
Coordination of endocrine evaluations, radiological imaging, ophthalmological opinion, and surgical and radiation therapy consultations.
A unique diagnostic and therapeutic plan individually formulated for each patient and shared with the referring doctor.
Routine multidisciplinary conferences where complex cases are presented and reviewed.
Patients with pituitary disease have a complex condition that requires the co-ordinated care of numerous medical specialists. Rarely can pituitary conditions be handled comprehensively by a single doctor. At Cape Town Pituitary Collaborative the emphasis is on integrated team-based care. Our medical team have worked together for many years on numerous cases. We strive to offer you the best possible care for your condition.
