Center for Adrenal Disorders

The Center for Adrenal Disorders is a comprehensive clinical care and research initiative formed by the collaborative communities at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in partnership with the Boston Children’s Hospital, and Dana Farber Cancer Institute, all at Harvard Medical School.  The goals of our center are:

1)    To provide exceptional care for patients with all forms of adrenal disorders, through our expertise and extensive resources.

2)    To improve the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of adrenal diseases by engaging in collaborative and innovative research.

We understand the complexity and range of adrenal disorders can be large, ranging from mild hormonal imbalances to severe hormone dysfunctions, inherited conditions, and benign as well as malignant cancers. To provide exceptional care for these specialized conditions, our center is comprised of a collection of world-class physicians, nurses, counselors, and coordinators that complement the array of adrenal disorders with outstanding experience in the field.  Our expertise is fully comprehensive, including: medical endocrinologists (adult and pediatric), adrenal surgeons, oncologists, geneticists, radiologists, and pathologists.  Patients in our center can expect expert consultation to evaluate:

  • Diagnosis of a new adrenal disorder or adrenal hormone imbalance
  • Medical management of an existing adrenal disorder
  • Surgical management of an adrenal disorder
  • Treatment of adrenal cancers
  • Genetic testing for adrenal disorders

Our team of Harvard Medical School faculty are among the world leaders in adrenal research and advancement.  In addition to providing their clinical expertise and passion for patient care, they are on the forefront of conducting novel research to better understand and treat adrenal diseases for the future.  This dedication and collaborative spirit in a unique multi-institutional setting make our center unique and effective at treating all adrenal diseases.
