  • Team approach. Cushing syndrome can affect many different systems in your body at once, requiring doctors with knowledge from many disciplines. Mayo Clinic doctors who treat hormone disorders (endocrinologists) work with neurosurgeons, endocrine surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and other specialists to provide you with the best care possible tailored to your needs.
  • Research pioneering. Mayo Clinic's Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, Metabolism, and Nutrition focuses on pituitary and adrenal disorders and is in the process of establishing a large database of patients with Cushing syndrome in the hopes of providing useful information for specialists to better evaluate and treat Cushing syndrome.
  • State-of-the-art treatment. Mayo Clinic researchers have made many contributions to the diagnosis and treatment of Cushing syndrome that have been incorporated into clinical practice, including new MRI techniques to localize small pituitary tumors, petrosal sinus sampling, endoscopic transnasal pituitary surgery, Gamma Knife therapy and laparoscopic adrenalectomy, a minimally invasive surgery to remove the adrenal glands.
