Adrenal surgery is used to treat diseases related to the adrenal gland caused generally by benign, and rarely malignant adrenal tumors. The adrenal gland makes four types of hormones that help regulate the body’s function including adrenaline, steroids, sex hormones, and those that control the body’s salt and water content.
At Providence Saint John’s our fellowship trained surgeon offers more than one surgical option to remove the adrenal gland including minimally-invasive techniques for most tumors and the most up-to-date diagnostic tests for adrenal disorders. The most appropriate treatment will be determined by your surgeon and personalized for your situation.
If you’ve been diagnosed with an adrenal condition or have been recommended for surgery, please call us for a consultation at 310-829-8751.
