Thyroid Disorders

The Ear, Nose & Throat team at Henry Ford Hospital was recently ranked 23rd in the nation by U.S. News & World Report on its 2018-19 Best Hospitals list.

We treat the spectrum of thyroid and parathyroid disorders.

The thyroid and parathyroid are glands in the neck. These glands produce hormones which control vital body functions. When these glands produce too much or too little hormones, serious problems such as heart disease and kidney damage can occur.

We treat a wide range of thyroid disorders, including hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Graves’ disease, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer.

Learn about parathyroid disorders and treatments.

Thyroid treatment options

Thyroid disorders often can be managed with medication, but some conditions require surgery. Our surgeons use advanced technologies during these procedures, including specialized monitoring devices, high-definition cameras, to perform the safest and least invasive surgeries possible.
