 This month the PNA Spotlight shines on Dr. Edward El Rassi, Assistant Professor of
Rhinology, Allergy, and Skull Base Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK. He attended medical school at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine graduating with special distinction. He then completed residency in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR. After residency, he furthered his training by completing a fellowship in Rhinology and Skull Base Surgery at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. He was kind enough to answer some questions from the PNA. His answers follow.




Pituitary Network Association

The PNA is an international non-profit organization for patients with pituitary tumors and disorders, their families, loved ones, and the physicians and health care providers who treat them.

The PNA was founded in 1992 by a group of acromegalic patients in order to communicate and share their experiences and concerns. The PNA has rapidly grown to become the world's largest and fastest growing patient advocacy organization devoted to the treatment and cure of pituitary disorders.

You Can Help! 

Donate Today

The PNA is supported by an international network of the world's finest physicians and surgeons. Our goal is to reach every patient who may be forgotten, abandoned, or worse yet, undiagnosed after many years of suffering. We are doing this in three ways: (1) by providing public awareness programs and educational seminars, (2) by assisting the medical community in developing uniform standards for early diagnosis, surgery, radiation, pharmacological treatment and follow-up, and (3) by having interactive web sites and a referral program on these web sites.

Mission Statement

To support, pursue, encourage, promote and where possible, fund research on pituitary disorders in a sustained and full-time effort to find a cure for these illnesses. The PNA will disseminate information helpful to the medical community, the public and to pituitary patients and their families on matters regarding early detection, symptoms, treatments and resources available to patients with pituitary disease.
