Research and Clinical Trials

As part of Torrance Memorial’s affiliation with Cedars-Sinai, you will have access to a full range of Cedars-Sinai clinical trials for pituitary disease. Cedars-Sinai conducts more pituitary disease clinical studies that almost any other facility in the United States, which means that Torrance Memorial patients have the opportunity to receive the most-promising therapies years before they are available to the public.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

At Torrance Memorial Medical Center, our neurosurgeons use the latest minimally invasive surgical techniques whenever possible to treat pituitary tumors. Our neurosurgeons use advanced technology — including endoscopic, microscopic, and image-guided surgical techniques — that allow for the precise removal of your tumor with minimal damage to surrounding structures and tissue.Minimally invasive pituitary surgery promotes faster recovery, results in less scarring, and reduces the risk of complications.
