The largest program in New York with 5 fellowship trained thyroid surgeons specializing in minimally invasive and "hidden scar" thyroid surgery

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 both the endoscopic transaxillary approach (under arm approach) and the robotic Bilateral Axillary Breast Approach (BABA, or breast approach).  To learn more, please download our program’s practice brochure.

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, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai hosted the prestigious 3rd 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 here to view the brochure and learn more.
