When the adrenal glands are not functioning correctly, hormone imbalance may occur that can impact many of the vital organs. Various types of tumors can impact the adrenal glands, resulting in poor hormone production or regulation. While some adrenal gland conditions can be controlled with medications, tumors and other abnormalities may require adrenal surgery. Danny Shouhed, M.D. is one of the top gastrointestinal surgeons in Los Angeles and Santa Monica who performs robotic and minimally-invasive surgery for adrenal gland treatment.
The adrenal glands are very small endocrine organs that are located on the top of each kidney. They produce hormones such as epinephrine, norepinephrine and cortisol that impact the cardiovascular system and metabolism. When there is an adrenal tumor, it can cause dysfunction of the gland and may require removal.
Dr. Shouhed is a board certified surgeon and is well-respected in the field of minimally-invasive and robotic gastrointestinal surgery. His experience and expertise in complex procedures has earned him a reputation as one of the best GI surgeons.
