PA Specialists

Your Primary Care Physician should be able to order the initial blood tests to determine if you are likely to have primary aldosteronism. If your test is positive, you will want to see a specialist for confirmatory testing and subtyping. Endocrinologists, nephrologists, and sometimes cardiologists and internists have experience in primary aldosteronism. Even so, it is often difficult to find someone with expertise.

The physicians listed here are among the most experienced clinicians in treating patients with primary aldosteronism. The list also includes radiologists specialized in Adrenal Venous Sampling, and endocrine surgeons with expertise in Adrenalectomy.

Professor Morris Brown

+44 20 7882 3901

+44 20 7882 3901

Location: London, UK

Specialties: Endocrinology, Clinical Pharmacology

Areas of Practice: In his laboratory and clinical research, Professor Brown has sought to discover causes of hypertension, and to optimise its management either by achieving complete cure, e.g. by removal of a hormone-producing adrenal tumour (pheochromocytoma, Conn’s), or by finding the right drug for the right patient. His current research is mainly focussed on the adrenal gland, and the small aldosterone-producing adenomas which are a common cause of hypertension – unrecognised in 99% of cases. In an NIHR project, he and his colleagues are comparing their newly developed technique of using a PET scan and metomidate with the invasive test of adrenal vein sampling, for their accuracy in predicting cure of hypertension by adrenalectomy. In a BHF-funded project, they are also evaluating a less invasive alternative to surgery, namely ultrasound guided endoscopic radiofrequency ablation of the adenoma.
