Stanford Endocrine Genetics Clinic

Complex Conditions Made Simple Through Prevention and Early Detection

Dr. Annes heads the Endocrine Genetics Clinic at Stanford University Hospital

Individuals who develop or have a family history of rare endocrine tumors such as a paraganglioma, pheochromocytoma, medullary thyroid cancer or a pancreatic neuroendocrine cell tumor may have a genetic condition. Diagnosing the presence of a hereditary condition is a critical step in patient care because affected individuals, healthy children, siblings and relatives may be at risk for additional tumors.

Our clinic works as part of a multi-disciplinary treatment team (endocrinologists, genetic counselors, radiologists, surgeons, pathologists and oncologists) to ensure patients and their families receive the best-possible care. The Endocrine Genetics Clinic at Stanford serves as the syndrome-specific primary care doctor for affected patients who require complex pre- and post-symptomatic multi-organ management. We recognize that the management of these conditions exceeds the capacity of most doctors. Patients need a management home that they can trust to manage their rare medical condition. We are experts in these specific disorders- its what we think about in the clinic and what we research in the lab.
