A messenger of good health.


The Department of Endocrine Surgery oversees the delivery of thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and neuroendocrine tumor operations across the health system in order to improve patient access and quality. Conditions commonly referred for surgery include thyroid nodules, goiters, thyroid cancer, Graves’ disease, hyperparathyroidism, and adrenal nodules, tumors, masses, and cancer.
