PNA Spotlight: Dr. Daniel Prevedello

Prevedello  This month the PNA Spotlight focuses on Dr. Daniel Prevedello, who is a member of the PNA Board of Directors. Dr. Prevedello is an       Associate Professor and Director of the Minimally Invasive Cranial Surgery Program in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the Ohio   State University in Columbus.  He attended medical school at the Federal University of Parana, Brazil and did an internship there, and then   did two more internships, at Wayne State University in Michigan and at Ospedale Policlinico de Bari in Puglia, Italy.  He did his residency at   Hospital Nossa Senhora Das Gracas, in Curitiba, PR, Brazil. And he completed fellowships at the University of Virginia and the University of   Pittsburgh.  He was kind enough to answer some questions from the PNA. His responses 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!

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.
