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.
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.
Our surgeons perform a high volume of thyroid surgeries every year. Because of this combination of experience, skill, and technology, our surgeons are among the few in the United States who can provide our patients with truly customized care. Meet our thyroid care team.
