Endocrine Surgery

At Guthrie our surgeons focus on diseases of the parathyroid, thyroid and adrenal glands, offering the latest diagnostic and surgical methods. Endocrine surgery is performed on the endocrine glands, glands which secrete hormones into the blood stream, to achieve a hormonal balance in the body.

Options for endocrine surgery include:

  • Thyroid ultrasound
  • Parathyroid ultrasound
  • Meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scanning
  • Fluorine-18 DOPA PET imaging
  • Fine needle aspiration biopsy
  • Radioiodine (131I) ablation
  • Targeted therapy for advanced thyroid cancers, including tyrosine kinase inhibitors
  • External beam radiation therapy for locally invasive thyroid cancers
