Endocrine Surgery

By using minimally invasive approaches and sophisticated image-guided procedures, Houston Methodist endocrine surgeons achieve highly effective results with shorter healing times for patients with parathyroid gland tumors and hyperplasia. Using advanced cytology and molecular analysis, we are able to better counsel patients on their cancer risk and have reduced the rate of diagnostic 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

Our team of surgeons, endocrinologists, nephrologists, radiologists, pathologists and other health care professionals work together to evaluate all patients and identify the most advanced diagnostic, medical and surgical techniques for treatment.
