Why choose us?

Providence Center for Pituitary Disorders offers patients and families the most experienced team in Oregon, and one of the most experienced teams in the Pacific Northwest. We provide expertise and compassion for patients needing endoscopic pituitary and skull-based surgeries.

Our team leads clinical trials and meets monthly as a multidisciplinary tumor board. This means our patients have more opportunities for expert consultation and cutting-edge treatment options. To ease the way for our patients, we coordinate care through preparation, to surgery, to recovery.

A word from Providence Brain Tumor Center medical director, Dr. Pankaj Gore: "Patients with any of these conditions face a daunting diagnosis. I aim to provide the best possible neurosurgical and medical care, guided by evidence-based medicine and delivered with technical expertise and compassion. For many patients with tumors, neurosurgery is just the first step. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team of specialist physicians to provide integrated, cutting-edge care."
