Expertise and rankings

  • Collaboration. At Mayo Clinic, experts in endocrinology, neurosurgery, radiology and pathology work together as a multidisciplinary team to care for people with Cushing syndrome. Other experts are included as needed.
  • State-of-the-art care. The latest treatments — some developed at Mayo Clinic — are available to people receiving treatment for Cushing syndrome at Mayo Clinic. This might include new MRI techniques to localize small pituitary tumors, endoscopic transnasal pituitary surgery, Gamma Knife therapy or laparoscopic adrenalectomy, a minimally invasive surgery to take out the adrenal glands.
  • Experience. Diagnosing Cushing syndrome can be difficult, but doctors at Mayo Clinic diagnose and treat hundreds of people with the disorder every year.
