Endocrine Surgery: Tests and Treatments

Advanced Technology, Minimally Invasive Procedures

Our surgeons specialize in laparoscopic and minimally invasive surgery for diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, as well as neuroendocrine tumors of the pancreas. Many procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.

We’re one of the few hospitals in the region using an intraoperative parathyroid hormone monitoring assay. This advanced technology measures parathyroid hormone levels during surgery to confirm that the abnormal parathyroid tissue is removed. Use of this technology increases the success of procedures and decreases surgery time.

Surgeries we perform include:

  • Laparoscopic adrenalectomy
    This is a procedure where one or both adrenal glands are removed through a very small incision. This surgery is performed for adrenal tumors, including hormone-producing tumors and pheochromocytomas.
  • Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy
    This surgery removes parathyroid glands or parathyroid tumors. It can be performed through an inch-long incision, often on an outpatient basis.
  • Minimally invasive/laparoscopic neuroendocrine tumor surgery
    Surgery, performed through a very small incision, to remove a tumor.
  • Management of multiple endocrine neoplasia
    This disorder affects the thyroid gland as well as other endocrine organs, including the parathyroids, adrenals and pancreas.
  • Parathyroid Surgery
    This includes intraoperative parathyroid hormone monitoring.
  • Thyroid Surgery
