Endocrine Surgery

Endocrine surgical issues involving the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals and endocrine pancreas are commonly addressed by USA surgeons in Chattanooga, TN.

Thyroid nodules are fluid-filled lumps found in the gland at the bottom of your neck. Most are not harmful nor do they have symptoms. Thyroid cancer is found in only a small portion of nodules.

Most adrenalectomies are amenable to a laparoscopic approach, and many parathyroidectomies can be addressed in a minimally invasive manner, utilizing intraoperative parathyroid hormone guidance.

In office availability of high-frequency cervical ultrasound facilitates the management of patients with thyroid and parathyroid disorders.
