Pheochromocytoma & Paraganglioma Treatment

Pheochromocytoma & Paraganglioma Treatment

Access exceptional care for pheochromocytoma (a type of adrenal gland tumor) and paraganglioma (a tumor near adrenal gland blood vessels and nerves) at Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center. As one of the first NCI-designated cancer centers, for more than 50 years, we've been a leader in the research, diagnosis and treatment of over 200 types of cancer.  

Expect accurate, timely answers so you can make informed choices about your health. Your care team will recommend diagnostic tests to determine if your tumor is benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous) and make recommendations for the next steps personalized to your health needs. 

If your tumor is cancerous, place your trust in the hands of some of the country’s best specialists. Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center is home to the first endocrine and neuroendocrine tumor program in the New York region and one of only a few programs in the country. You’ll receive advanced, comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary team dedicated to caring for patients like you.  

If you need adrenal gland removal surgery, your procedure may be performed laparoscopically. This means that your surgeon uses advanced technology and minimally invasive techniques, so you have a faster recovery with less risk of complications than traditional surgery. 

You also benefit from our ongoing research into new, innovative treatments, some of which can be included in your care before they’re widely available if you choose to participate in one of our cutting-edge cancer clinical trials.

When you need pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma care, turn to our providers who are passionate about ending cancer and addressing your whole health needs.
