The Endocrine Surgery Thyroid Program provides comprehensive, integrated care to patients with disorders of the thyroid gland. Multiple specialists, including surgeons, endocrinologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, geneticists and others work together to create a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan for every patient. Our surgeons specialize in the latest and most novel approaches including minimally invasive, endoscopic and robotic techniques. In addition to conventional thyroidectomy, we specialize in remote access, “hidden scar”, thyroid surgery. We are the only program in the United States to offer three remote access approaches: transoral endoscopic thyroidectomy (TOETVA), the endoscopic transaxillary approach (under arm approach) and the robotic Bilateral Axillary Breast Approach (BABA, or breast approach). Learn more about these techniques.
Patient safety is a top priority at our program. The Mount Sinai Endocrine Surgery Thyroid Program is an active participant with the Collaborative Endocrine Surgery Quality Improvement Program (CESQIP), a national quality initiative that is managed by the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons. CESQIP allows surgeons and hospitals to closely monitor their outcomes with an implicit goal of improving outcome. More information about CESQIP can be found at cesqip.org.
In 2015 and 2017, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai hosted the prestigious 3rd and 4th New York Masters Course in Endocrinology and Endocrine Surgery, a course which brings regional and national experts to education other physicians on endocrine surgery topics; click the year to view the brochure and learn more: 2015, 2017.
