Comprehensive pituitary center at Cedars-Sinai brings together under one roof,,medical, surgical, research and other components

LOS ANGELES -- Emphasizing patient convenience and integrated clinical, surgical and research components, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is launching a unique and comprehensive pituitary center. What makes this center unique is that, for the first time, it integrates under one roof Cedars-Sinai's world-renowned pituitary disease treatment and research programs with some of the most advanced and innovative types of skull base surgery available today. In addition to clinical, surgical and research components, the new Cedars-Sinai Pituitary Center will also provide in-house pathology and imaging services, thereby enhancing patient convenience and making medical charts and records immediately accessible to all members of the multi-disciplinary treatment team. Physicians who wish to refer their patients to the Pituitary Center for evaluation or treatment can also utilize the services there, with the patient being referred back to his or her own physician for all ongoing medical care.

Under the co-direction of Shlomo Melmed, M.D., and Hrayr K. Shahinian, M.D., the 3,000-sq. ft. center will open in early August. A world-renowned endocrinologist and researcher, Dr. Melmed, also serves as director of the Cedars-Sinai Research Institute and senior vice president of the Medical Center's Academic Affairs. Widely considered one of the preeminent experts on the pituitary, he has authored or co-authored hundreds of articles on that topic, is editor-in-chief of "Pituitary Journal," and wrote the major classic text, The Pituitary.

Like Dr. Melmed, Dr. Shahinian brings with him a wealth of experience and a reputation for being on the leading edge of medicine today. One of the country's premier skull base surgeons, he is one of only a handful of physicians in the United States to use a fully endoscopic procedure in removing pituitary tumors. In addition to his responsibilities as the Pituitary Center's co-director, he will continue to serve as director of the Cedars-Sinai
