The Center for Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery
The Center for Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery at the New York Head & Neck Institute offers a broad range of specialists who diagnose and treat disorders of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. The Center serves as a focal point where patients and physicians may obtain up-to-date information about the management of thyroid and parathyroid disease in a clear, simplified format.
The Center is staffed by a team of regional experts in the fields of head and neck surgery, endocrinology (study of the body's glands and their hormones), pathology (the study of disease), cytopathology (the study of diseased cells), nuclear medicine (the use of chemicals that can be seen on X-ray after injection into the blood stream) and radiology (the use and interpretation of X-rays and scans).
Specialized care and treatment of thyroid-related voice disorders is also provided by our skilled speech-language pathologists. The collection of these different specialists at the Center makes it more likely the patient will receive all of the input regarding their particular problem to enable them to make an informed decision regarding their treatment.
