Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma Center of Excellence Clinic
The Pheo Para Center of Excellence program provides an environment where patients receive the best possible pheo para care through a geographically diverse network of clinical centers. In addition to clinical and wellness services, the centers provide professional and lay education in the areas they server, work with the Pheo Para Alliance in its efforts to continually improve the lives of those affected by the illness, and support clinical research efforts.
In 2021, Tufts MC was designated the first-ever Pheo/Para Specialized Clinical Center by the Pheo Para Alliance Center of Excellence program. CBS Boston featured Tufts MC neuroendicronologist, Dr. Ronald Lechan and his team (pictured above receiving the designation), for their work saving a young woman’s life from this rare and often misdiagnosed tumor.
