The Thyroid & Parathyroid Clinic provides comprehensive care to our patients from diagnosis to long-term care. The majority of patients undergoing procedures can also do same-day procedures, reducing the number of times you need to come.
We treat these specific conditions along with others:
- Thyroid nodules
- Thyroid cancers
Our services include the following:
- Neck ultrasound
- Thyroid cancer surveillance
- Onsite biopsy service
- Parathyroid localization
- Ethanol ablation of toxic adenomas and parathyroid adenomas
Our biopsies are performed under ultrasound guidance with bedside assessment of cells obtained during the biopsy.
We have championed a unique method of estimating hormones in the specimens obtained during the biopsy that improves the diagnostic accuracy, and we have the expertise to perform percutaneous alcohol ablation of cystic thyroid nodules.
