Endocrine Surgery is a special field of surgery that focuses on the management of problems (principally benign and malignant tumors) of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, as well as endocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract and the pancreas. The Divisions of Endocrine Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian provide excellent patient care and advance knowledge of diseases of these glands through research and education.
At both NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, the clinical focus of Endocrine Surgery is to employ minimally invasive techniques to provide superb care. Our surgeons have extensive experience with these techniques. To this end, thyroid and parathyroid surgery is performed under local or regional anesthesia using small incisions. Adrenal tumors are approached via laparoscopic techniques whenever possible.
The NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia Division of Endocrine Surgery specializes in minimally invasive techniques that empower patients to return to their normal lives faster and with less discomfort. Our surgeons are among the most experienced thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal specialists in the country and are proud members of the Columbia Thyroid Center, Columbia Parathyroid Center, and Columbia Adrenal Center. These Centers bring together world-class experts from every medical specialty who are leaders in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal diseases.
The Division of Endocrine Surgery at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell offers extensive expert care in the surgical treatment of thyroid nodules and cancers, adrenal gland tumors and disorders, hyperparathyroidism and other thyroid conditions, and endocrine tumors of the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract.
