Surgery of the Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Adrenal Gland

The Endocrine Surgery Program at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) has been providing nationally recognized care and innovative services to patients for over a decade. In the last 10 years alone, our surgeons have performed over 2500 operations of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. We perform more endocrine procedures at HUP than any other center in the greater Philadelphia area. Our surgeons work in concert with endocrinologists, nephrologists, radiologists and pathologists who have focused their careers on the management of disorders of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. We offer a variety of styles from the fast-paced academic practice to good old-fashioned doctoring wrapped up in a modern package.

We specialize in the management of benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. As active participants in the “Thyroid Interest Group” at PENN we provide a multidisciplinary approach to the management of thyroid disorders. By attending national conferences, we bring new technology and modern approaches back to the bedside to provide the best treatment for our patients. We perform minimally invasive parathyroidectomies on appropriate patients by utilizing pre-operative localization studies and intra-operative parathyroid hormone monitoring. Additionally, for certain disorders of the parathyroid glands, we utilize a more traditional approach of a four gland exploration in order to appropriately treat all of our patients. We also treat the majority of benign adrenal lesions laparoscopically thereby sparing our patients from large incisions and limiting the required length of their hospital stay. When necessary we are also skilled in “open” approaches to adrenal surgery for patients with malignant diseases.

We welcome you to our practices and encourage you to call 215-615-5858 for further information and to schedule an appointment with a specific provider.
