I also treat patients with pituitary tumors and other sellar and parasellar tumors. To help meet the needs of these patients, I established the Pituitary Tumor Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering.
Unique to New York City, the Pituitary Tumor Center offers specialized multidisciplinary care and expertise in surgery, endocrinology, and neuro-ophthalmology for patients with these types of tumors. Patients with pituitary tumors benefit from the use of MRI during surgery that enables us to perform safer, more extensive surgeries.
I am also a neuroscientist. In my research laboratory at Memorial Hospital, I am studying the potential use of neural and pluripotent stem cells to repair brain tissue following injury or disease.
