Endocrine Surgery

Using minimal access surgery and radio- guidance approaches, Houston Methodist surgical endocrinologists achieve highly effective results with shorter healing times for patients with parathyroid gland tumors and hypoplasia. Using advanced cytology and genetic analysis, our surgical endocrinologists have reduced the rate of recurrence of benign thyroid nodules and unnecessary thyroid surgeries.
Surgical and medical endocrinologists work side-by-side with pathologists to diagnose and treat endocrine system conditions involving:
  • Thyroid: Goiter and cancer
  • Parathyroid: Primary and secondary hyperparathyroidism
  • Adrenal gland: Benign and malignant tumors
  • Endocrine pancreas: Tumors

A multidisciplinary team of surgeons, endocrinologists, nephrologists, radiologists, pathologists and other health care professionals evaluate all patients and identify the most advanced diagnostic, medical and surgical techniques for treatment. By using minimally invasive approaches and sophisticated image-guided procedures, we are able to achieve the best outcomes for our patients.
