Endocrine Surgery

Endocrine disorders can be treated in a number of ways after initial diagnosis. The most commonly used treatments for this disorder are hormone replacement or suppression therapy which help patients regain normalcy and manage the disease. Endocrine surgery offers another treatment alternative to the routinely used hormone management route. Treating thyroid, adrenal, and parathyroid disorders through endocrine surgery is a multidisciplinary method that requires the collaboration of endocrinologists and endocrine surgeons who are well experienced in carrying out the task effectively.

Types of Endocrine Surgeries

Depending on the area of the endocrine system that is affected and the patient’s overall health, possible endocrine surgeries can be carried out like:

Adrenalectomy

This procedure removes the entire adrenal gland.

Parathyroidectomy

Removal of one or more of the four parathyroid glands when they are found to overproduce the parathyroid hormone.

Thyroidectomy

When a patient has thyroid cancer or a thyroid-related adrenal disease, ENT doctors may choose to remove all or part of the thyroid.

Thyroid lobectomy

The removal of one or more lobes of the thyroid gland can work to eliminate masses without taking the entire thyroid.
