Endocrine surgeons perform a range of operations on the thyroid and other glands of the endocrine system. Since endocrine dysfunction affects the function of all internal organs, endocrine surgeons interact closely with specialists in other fields. Modern surgical techniques used by endocrinologists at GMS Hospital include low-impact methods such as endoscopy, ensuring successful treatment for various pathologies of the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands.
Diseases of the endocrine glands are often difficult to detect, as they may resemble other disorders, and are often discovered only in quite advanced stages. A visit to an endocrinologist is needed if the following symptoms occur:
Many endocrine pathologies, if detected in time, can be fully cured by conservative means. Systematic hormone replacement therapy may be necessary, and some conditions require surgical treatment. With early diagnosis and a carefully selected course of therapy, most endocrine diseases can be controlled or completely cured. You can make an appointment with an endocrine surgeon at GMS Hospital on the website or by phone.
The procedures performed by endocrine surgeons to treat diseases of the thyroid, thymus and adrenal glands include the following operations:
The endocrine surgeon will select the treatment strategy that achieves the best clinical outcome with minimal trauma to the patient.
To obtain a complete picture of the disease, the doctor will perform a comprehensive examination, including:
Based on the test results, the endocrine surgeons at GMS Hospital will make an accurate diagnosis, prescribe the necessary treatment, and monitor the patient’s progress.
At the initial consultation the surgical endocrinologist will:
Following the examination, the doctor will have the patient undergo a number laboratory tests and analyses. Based the results of these tests the doctor will make a final diagnosis, determine the scope of the surgical intervention, perform the operation, and develop and monitor the patient’s rehabilitation and recovery.
Endocrine surgeons at GMS Hospital use various methods of surgical intervention, successfully performing both traditional and endoscopic operations and using low-impact methods such as TOETVA and MIVAT. Our specialists perform the following interventions on the endocrine glands:
Most operations are performed with minimally invasive endoscopic instruments, which contributes to the patient’s speedy recovery.
If you are referred for consultation to an endocrine surgeon, this does not mean that an operation is inevitable. The treatment strategy is determined based on the results of a comprehensive set of tests and analyses. If during diagnosis it is established that the disease can be controlled and treated conservatively, the doctor will prescribe a course of hormone therapy.
If an operation is required, the endocrine surgeon will select the most appropriate option, explain in detail the stages of the operation and possible risks, carry out all preoperative steps, and set a date for the surgery and subsequent hospitalization.
