Conditions We Treat
Hyperthyroidism or overactive thyroid occurs when the thyroid gland — an organ crucial to physiological functions such as breathing, controlling metabolism, and maintaining body temperature — overproduces the thyroid hormones.
Thyroid cancer involves malignant tissue growth on the thyroid gland in the neck. There are different types of thyroid cancer, for which surgery is typically the main treatment.
Thyroid nodules are abnormal but typically noncancerous growths of tissue within the thyroid gland.
Treatment & Procedure Options
Thyroid surgery or thyroidectomy involves removal of some or all of the thyroid gland to treat problems such as cancer, cysts, noncancerous tumors, or overactive thyroid.
