Why Choose the Barrow Pituitary Program?
Most Experienced Center in Southwest
No other hospital in the Southwest performs more pituitary surgeries on a yearly basis than Barrow Neurological Institute at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s. In fact, from 2011-2013 we performed five times as many pituitary procedures as any other hospital in the state.
This experience means that our doctors and nurses have seen nearly every kind of pituitary tumor and disorder imaginable. With this exposure, they have gained invaluable insight that helps them be efficient and effective in administering your care.
Many pituitary disorders can cause problems in your body far beyond the pituitary gland. Our location at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s—the largest hospital in Arizona—means that Barrow patients also have access to a tremendous array of specialists.
All of Your Appointments in One Location
Because there is such a diversity of medical knowledge within minutes of our doors, odds are that you will be able to concentrate all of your necessary care under one roof. At Barrow, we refer to this as having a “medical home.” And, as you would expect with anyplace called home, with it comes convenience, comfort, and compassionate care.
Certified Neuroscience Nurses
The experience of our staff doesn’t drop off outside of our neurosurgeons and neurologists. All of our nurses at the Barrow Pituitary Center are required to undergo additional rigorous training in the nuances and complexities of advanced neuroscience nursing practice. This guarantees that whenever you see a Barrow nurse at your bedside, you will know you are receiving expert care.
Clinical Trials and Research
Not only is Barrow a place to receive the most advanced treatment and care for your pituitary tumor or disorder, we are also a place where you can help contribute to the scientific understanding and therapeutic research surrounding acromegaly, adenomas, gigantism, and other disorders that implicate the pituitary gland.
In fact, many of the surgical treatments and medical protocols used on patients here were researched and developed on site and have spread to many other top hospitals the world over.
