Why Choose Endocrine Surgery at Vanderbilt
- Depth of expertise
Our surgeons are fellowship trained and specialize in treating the most complex endocrine surgical conditions. Patients who have received a diagnosis or treatment elsewhere often come to us for a second opinion because of our extensive experience performing endocrine surgeries.
- Collaborative care
Because endocrine problems may involve different areas of the body, we bring together experts in endocrine surgery, cancer care, radiology and genetics. Together, we create a personalized treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
- Genetic counseling
Inherited endocrine conditions can often go unnoticed. We offer comprehensive genetic evaluation, counseling and testing for patients who may have a family history of endocrine disease. This service allows you to make the most informed decision about your health.
Our researchers are dedicated to developing new and more effective approaches to care. We not only apply the latest research, but also pioneer some of the latest innovations. You may have access to treatments before they are widely available.
