Surgical Services at our Center

Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery

The surgeons involved in this center have extensive experience with thyroid and parathyroid surgery, including all forms of thyroid cancer. Our surgeons also have expertise  in Minimally Invasive Parathyroid Surgery guided by intra-operative parathyroid hormone monitoring, which is offered to appropriate patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. The procedure allows patients to leave the hospital on the same day as their surgery. The Center performs about 500 neck operations a year.

Adrenal and Pancreatic Surgery

The surgeons involved have extensive experience in adrenal and endocrine pancreatic surgery.* Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is available and is the generally preferred operative approach for adrenal tumors. *Our surgeons have also introduced to the Southeast a new operating technique for adrenal tumors: retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy, allowing the surgeon to avoid abdominal incisions altogether.
