Your Medical Team for Pituitary Tumors at the University of Colorado Cancer Center
University of Colorado Hospital and the University of Colorado Cancer Center use a team approach to your care. That means we bring all types of specialists – including surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, nurses, social workers, geneticists, counselors and more – to review a patient’s case, follow its progress and develop ways to achieve the best results.
Medical knowledge, as you might know, doubles every four years. Keeping up with it all is often hard for a community physician. And since we’re the only hospital in the region to partner with the renowned University of Colorado School of Medicine, each attending physician here is on the faculty of the School of Medicine.
What that means for you
It means each doctor on your care team has precise, ongoing training in his or her area of expertise and a specific interest in pituitary tumors and their care.
