Endocrine disorders often are complex and involve many organs and processes of the body. Using a team approach, our specialists—including endocrinologists, surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, nuclear medicine physicians and a specially trained support staff—collaborate and communicate closely with each other to deliver carefully coordinated care.
Our multidisciplinary team evaluates and treats patients with for thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, tumors and disorders of the adrenal gland, and other malignancy related endocrine problems.
Our endocrinologists work with urologic surgeons to manage benign adrenal and malignant adrenal tumors, and disorders of the adrenal gland. The evaluation and treatment of hormonally active adrenal tumors such as pheochromocytomas is complex and requires expertise from many subspecialties.
Patients with hereditary endocrine tumor syndromes such as multiple endocrine neoplasia types 1 and 2 are evaluated in collaboration with the Risk Assessment Program that provides genetic testing and counseling.
