Cushing’s Disease

LandingCushing’s Disease

If you, a family member or friend have been diagnosed with a Cushing’s disease, or think you may have Cushing’s disease, our team of pituitary experts is here to provide help and guidance. At the Pacific Pituitary Disorders Center, we provide comprehensive care for patients with Cushing’s disease, as well as patient education and psychosocial support.

Cushing’s disease is caused by a pituitary adenoma producing an excess of the hormone ACTH which then leads to excess cortisol levels in the blood. Once the diagnosis of Cushing’s disease is confirmed, adenoma removal via the nose is typically the initial treatment of choice. At Pacific Pituitary Disorders Program, we have one of the world’s largest experiences in endonasal endoscopic transsphenoidal adenoma surgery with a very large experience in Cushing’s disease.  Our endocrinologists are also highly experienced in the medical therapy options for Cushing’s disease patients who are not cured after initial surgery.

To learn more about Cushing’s disease treatment options, make an appointment by calling 310-582-7640. You can also complete this brief form that is emailed to our team members and someone will contact you within 24 hours.
