Thyroid and Parathyroid

Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery Banner

Surgery may be part of the treatment plan for a mass or condition of the thyroid or parathyroid. Our ENT surgeons can guide you through minimally invasive surgical options that can lead to a faster recovery, less blood loss, and a shorter hospital stay.

Common thyroid and parathyroid conditions 

Thyroid and parathyroid tumors and accompanying complications are common conditions ENT physicians have expertise in diagnosing and treating. An ENT doctor can pinpoint the source of your symptoms and develop a treatment plan tailored to you. Your doctor may suggest surgery for thyroid nodules, salivary gland tumors, cancer, goiter, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and thyroiditis.

In-office ultrasounds

Our ENT doctors may provide in-office ultrasound-guided needle biopsies to diagnose conditions. These biopsies only take 10 to 15 minutes and can speed up your treatment process.
