You need and deserve the kind of quality and coordinated thyroid care that is only provided in New York City by the Mount Sinai Thyroid Center. Here, all under one roof, we can ensure that you receive an accurate diagnosis and the best possible plan of action to manage your condition, from a minor hormonal imbalance to the most invasive disease.
At Mount Sinai-Union Square, our multidisciplinary team will provide you with a thorough consultation at a single location and treatment that is fast and effective. For all your thyroid and parathyroid concerns, a team of endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists and pathologists will partner with specialists in other related disciplines to create a personalized treatment plan for you. Uniquely, our Thyroid Center has dedicated patient navigators who will coordinate your care seamlessly across all the experts that your condition requires.
If you need laboratory tests, a thyroid ultrasound or a thyroid biopsy, we will do it on the spot. We provide immediate preliminary results of your biopsy and if your condition will benefit from surgery, our experts can see you without delay. We’ll discuss in detail the best approach for managing your condition. We can also set up radiology and nuclear medicine consultations if that will be helpful in diagnosing or treating your thyroid or a related condition.
“My doctor checks my thyroid nodules every six months, and I am fine. I feel lucky to have everything I need near me in one place—especially doctors I know and trust.”
– Angela S., patient since 2012 at Mount Sinai Thyroid Center
No matter what you need, our team is here to help you. We will schedule an appointment for you to see one of our endocrinologists or surgeons as soon as possible for diagnosis and treatment within 72 hours of your request.
If you have a known thyroid/parathyroid condition or are experiencing symptoms such as changes in your energy level, fluctuations in your weight, swelling of your neck, or changes in your voice- our experts can help you.
We also encourage you to contact the Thyroid Center for a second or third opinion to assure that you are on the right treatment path. We are also happy to review your medical records, as well as your biopsy slides and scans, if appropriate and to meet with you about your diagnosis and treatment. Our team will then make recommendations about your care, suggesting appropriate alternatives.
Collaborative Initiatives and International Expertise
We are committed to providing you the most advanced care.
Our Center is engaged in cutting edge research to determine the cause of thyroid disease, in particular the Thyroid Autoimmune Diseases. The Davies Thyroid Laboratory at Mount Sinai is a state of the art research facility that is internationally recognized and has been the source of innovation and discovery in the field of thyroidology (the study and practice of patient thyroid care) for over 30 years. The Davies Laboratory has made discoveries in the regulation of thyroid growth and metabolism, the genetic association of thyroid diseases, and recently, has developed major activity in the area of human thyroid stem cells. Our studies have been supported by the National Institutes of Health since 1980.
One of the hallmarks of a comprehensive multidisciplinary thyroid program is a thirst for new knowledge that can enhance our understanding about thyroid disease. The goal of knowledge seeking is being to inform the future management of thyroid cancer. Much remains to be discovered about the biology of thyroid cancer. Some research takes place in a basic science research laboratory. Other discoveries are made through research in the clinical setting with patients.
Thoughtful research questions are helping us to lead advances in thyroid cancer management for you, our patient. Before we start a research project, our Institutional Review Board conducts a review. This review provides oversight about the value of a project and ensures the safety to participating patients. As a patient who enters into a clinical research study, we will give you give you the information you need to give your informed consent. If you do not wish to be included in our clinical research study, you can be assured that you care will not be adversely affected.
Our Thyroid Center doctors are constantly involved in conducting clinical research for the sake of discovery and to improve the care and outcomes of you and all of our patients. If you have questions about clinical research, we encourage you to ask. We are happy to discuss our areas of research.
Thyroid Cancer Tumor Board
Multiple specialties are involved in your care when you have thyroid disease: surgery, endocrinology, and nuclear medicine, and possibly radiation and medical oncology as needed. Other specialists who are important to your diagnosis include cytopathologists (studies disease at the cellular level), pathologists (studies causes and effects of disease), and radiologists (uses X-rays and other radiation to diagnose and treat disease).
We believe that the best care for your thyroid cancer is through a coordinated multidisciplinary team approach. Therefore, if you have an advanced form of thyroid cancer, we will review your case at our monthly Thyroid Tumor Board meeting. At this meeting, our multidisciplinary panel of experts will do a thorough review of your pathology, imaging, and prior treatment. Our goal is to have an informed discussion and decide the best next steps for your diagnosis and therapeutic treatment. It is to your advantage to have the insights from each of the specialists to ensure that you receive the best care for your condition.
Thyroid Cancer Care Collaborative
To ensure that you receive the finest care, our Center participates with national thyroid organizations to maintain best practices in thyroid cancer treatment, including a national quality initiative that monitors patient outcomes. We encourage you as a thyroid cancer patient to participate in the Thyroid Cancer Care Collaborative, a secure database, where you and the doctors of your choice are able to see your medical records to better manage your care and truly work together as a coordinated team.
Our specialists continuously work on improving the quality of your care and refining diagnostic accuracy. We do this through constant feedback about your thyroid condition. In addition, Mount Sinai is an active participant in the Collaborative Endocrine Surgery Quality Improvement Program (CESQIP). CESQIP has more than 50 participating hospitals. The CESQIP mission is to advance quality in the field of thyroid and endocrine surgery. Through this collaborative, Mount Sinai surgeons can benchmark our performance and outcomes to peers throughout the United States to provide the safest possible care to you and and patients.
At Mount Sinai-Union Square, we bring you the most innovative medicine and advanced health care. We do this through our pioneering research. We push the limits of discovery in clinical trials—providing you with the very latest diagnostics and treatments available.
We can ensure that you receive outstanding care in managing your thyroid condition.
