Dr Stephen Orme
My area of research include pituitary diseases, specifically acromegaly (a condition where the body produces too much growth hormone), thyroid and adrenal disease, osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease. He was awarded an MD in 1997 for major research into morbidity and mortality in acromegaly, and this research has informed the management of patients with acromegaly, worldwide.
I am married with three grown up daughters. My wife is a GP in Leeds. Outside of medicine I am an avid theatre goer, middling tennis player and an enthusiastic skier.
