About MEDICOVER Munich Neuroendocrinology

Under the medical direction of Prof. Dr Günter Stalla, patients with diseases of the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland are diagnosed, treated, and cared for in the MEDICOVER Munich Neuroendocrinology MVZ practice.

In addition, Prof. Stalla's team regularly offers nutritional courses on metabolic optimization for patients, relatives, and interested parties. They also provide continuing education courses for physicians.

Medical Expertise in Neuroendocrinology, Diabetology, and Andrology

Prof. Dr Günter Stalla and his team specialize in diagnosing and treating neuroendocrinological diseases. Damage to the higher-level hormonal centers of the brain, such as the hypothalamus and pituitary gland, can result in severe functional impairment of hormonal circuits controlled by these central regulatory organs.

Diabetes can best be treated if the patient develops a basic understanding of their metabolic processes. On this basis, the affected person can make health-promoting decisions to avoid the late consequences of the disease. Therefore, the MEDICOVER team led by Prof. Dr Stalla always advises every person with diabetes, intending to make him the best therapist for his disease.

Also, with questions about the man's health and masculine sexual function, capable advisors are found with MEDICOVER in Munich. Disturbances of the male sexual function, such as erectile dysfunction and loss of libido, are often explained by changes in the hormone balance and require andrological clarification.

State-of-the-Art Treatments for Diseases of the Hypothalamus and Pituitary Gland

Craniopharyngiomas are benign tumors of the base of the skull that arise from the early development of the pituitary gland and can compress the pituitary gland and surrounding tissue as they grow. This can be manifested by headaches, visual disturbances, growth retardation in children, and disturbed water balance. Therefore, surgical removal of the tumor is indicated to relieve the compressed tissue. To guarantee a smooth procedure, Prof. Stalla cooperates with a staff of experienced neurosurgeons specializing in the surgical treatment of pituitary tumors.

Meningiomas are usually benign brain tumors that arise from the surrounding meninges. Because of their slow growth, the benign forms become symptomatic late but still have a good chance of recovery. Smaller tumors do not require treatment, only regular follow-up.

Pituitary adenomas are benign pituitary gland tumors and can be divided into hormone-inactive and hormone-active tumors. Visual field defects may occur due to pressure on the optic nerve pathway, while other symptoms result from hormonal disturbances due to derangements in pituitary hormone production. In a minimally invasive procedure, most pituitary adenomas can be removed through the nose.

The hormonal balance of the thalamic-pituitary system can also be permanently disturbed after craniocerebral trauma or brain infarctions. Prof. Stalla's team can draw on many years of clinical experience to serve as outpatient consultants to patients after neurological lesions.

Pituitary insufficiency manifests in a wide variety of symptoms since the pituitary gland, as the central hormone gland, directs and coordinates the effects of our entire hormone system. A distinction is made between partial and total pituitary insufficiency, depending on the remaining hormone production. The treating physician can precisely localize the insufficiency through targeted hormone administration and subsequent blood checks with a simulation test. If a deficiency is diagnosed early, the missing hormones can be substituted with an average life expectancy.

Growth Hormone Deficiency – Diagnosis and Treatment

Growth hormone deficiency can occur in children as part of pituitary insufficiency. This manifests in short stature compared to children of the same age and delayed tooth growth. The missing somatotropin and, if applicable, missing sex hormones must absolutely be supplemented so that an age-appropriate physical development can take place.

Acromegaly Therapy in Munich

Acromegaly is the opposite of pituitary insufficiency and is characterized by an excess of the growth hormone somatotropin. If the disease occurs before the completion of height growth, affected adolescents are conspicuous by a giant stature. After completion of height growth, only growth of the nose, fingers, toes, chin, cheekbones, and soft tissues is possible. Therapeutic options include surgical removal of any hormone-active pituitary tumor or administration of growth-inhibiting hormone analogs.

Cushing's Syndrome – Specialists for Cushing's Disease

Cushing's syndrome results from an excess of cortisone and can be caused either by high-dose cortisone therapy or the organism's increased cortisone production. Classic symptoms are unexplained weight gain, a diabetic metabolic condition, muscle weakness, hypertension, and dry, porous pergamentous skin.

High Level of Expertise in the Diagnosis and Therapy of Diabetes Insipidus

Diabetes insipidus is a rare endocrine system disorder caused by a deficiency of ADH hormone from the pituitary gland. Typical symptoms are an extremely high urine excretion and an increased feeling of thirst. Prof. Stalla and his team have the specialist medical experience to diagnose the condition and take the necessary steps, such as prescribing the missing hormones.

Information About Munich

Specialist doctors and medical centres in Munich

Bavaria's capital is the third largest city in Germany and is located far to the south in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. The proximity to the Alps makes Munich a location for winter and hiking sports, but there are many lakes and royal castles in the surrounding area, providing the city with other attractive leisure destinations. Located to the left and right of the mountain river, the Isar, the city itself offers quite a few opportunities for recreation in the interior. In the center, the old town, founded in 1158, is marked by the former city gates.
