Clinical Interest for Patients

I primarily provide treatment of adult and children endocrine surgery disorders that affect the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pancreas. My expertise includes the surgical treatment of hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules, (recurrent) thyroid cancer, hyperparathyroidism and parathyroid cancer, pheochromocytoma, and functional and non-functional adrenal and pancreatic endocrine tumors. If you've been diagnosed with a carcinoid tumor, adrenal cortical carcinoma, Graves' disease, multi-nodular goiter, or require a parathyroidectomy, thyroidectomy or laparoscopic adrenalectomy, I can help you.
