Conditions We Treat
Your thyroid, the butterfly-shaped gland above where your collarbones meet, plays a critical role in metabolism, which is the way in which your body uses energy. Thyroid hormones are released from the gland, and control a variety of functions, such as body temperature, heart rate, and body weight. The thyroid gland can also become the site of benign or malignant growths.
Your four parathyroid glands are very small and located behind the thyroid gland. These are responsible for maintaining the proper level of calcium in the bloodstream. Parathyroids can be overgrown or overactive, which causes high levels of calcium and can weaken bones.
