Pediatric Endocrinology Associates
The pituitary gland is located at the base of your brain. It is responsible for producing multiple hormones that control thyroid function, growth and stress response among others.
A pituitary gland that produces. too much or too little of any hormone may cause a disorder. Dr. Hector Granados can diagnose and treat pituitary disorders.
