Endocrine Surgery

At Mount Sinai, our endocrine surgeons are world-renowned and sought after for their expertise in treating imbalances and growths that occur within the body’s complex and important endocrine system. From the adrenal glands to the parathyroid and thyroid glands, we work as a collaborative team to provide outstanding and compassionate care to return you to robust and balanced health. In fact, our surgeons are pioneering new treatments of thyroidectomy, being the only group in the country to offer three new types of “hidden-scar” approaches to our patients.

About Your Endocrine System

By taking care of your body’s important endocrine system, you are taking an essential step in caring for your overall health. Made up of a network of glands located at various points throughout your body that produce hormones, your endocrine system silently regulates many of your body’s functions—from how it metabolizes food to how you grow, and even how fast your heart beats. If your endocrine system becomes diseased or imbalanced, it is essential that you see an endocrinologist to determine the cause. Some of these conditions can be treated with observation or mediation, however, frequently surgical removal of the endocrine gland is the best way to achieve a cure. Our endocrine surgeons offer a variety of unique and highly effective options to treat your condition.
