The pituitary gland lies at the base of the skull, between the brain and the paranasal sinuses. From this location, it serves a critical link between the brain and the body. It is the master controller for many of the hormones that profoundly influence our well being.

The Pituitary Partner Program at Baylor Medicine pairs new patients with former patients whose conditions and therapies are similar. There is no cost to participate in the program. It is simply our way of making sure patients feel assured, informed and supported throughout the entire experience.
Consent forms are signed by all participants before any contact information is shared. Once a match is made, the volunteer will be notified of a new patient's interest. We then share contact information with both individuals and communication is arranged by the participants.
