Endocrine Surgery

Our surgeons specialize in endocrine surgery to treat benign and malignant conditions of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal glands and pancreas. We use state-of-the-art technology, including minimally invasive surgical techniques, which offer patients better cosmetic results, reduced recovery time, and a quicker return to normal activities.

The endocrine glands are responsible for secreting hormones in our bodies. These glands include the thyroid in the front of the neck, four parathyroids behind the thyroid, two adrenal glands near each kidney, neuroendocrine glands in the pancreas, and the pituitary gland in the brain.

Our surgeons provide a full spectrum of surgical care for conditions of the endocrine system, including for:
