Surgical Endocrinology

Endocrine surgeons at workThe Section of Endocrine Tumor Surgery within the Department of Surgical Oncology treats endocrine tumors in children and adults, with the goal of improving patient care through emerging technologies and advances in clinical and basic research. Our multidisciplinary team approach includes surgery, medical care and genetic counseling to treat a wide variety of endocrine diseases, including:  

  • Benign and malignant tumors of the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas, and adrenal glands
  • Familial papillary thyroid carcinoma
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia types 1 & 2 (MEN 1, MEN 2)
  • von Hippel Lindau disease (VHL)

Our highly skilled surgeons use state-of-the-art technology, including minimally invasive parathyroid surgery with the availability of intraoperative parathyroid (PTH) assay, and laparoscopic adrenalectomy for candidates with adrenal disease.
