Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery
Thyroid and Parathyroid Endocrine Surgery
As one of the largest centers of its kind, we specialize in treating disorders that affect your thyroid and/or parathyroid glands. Thyroid disorders are common and can dramatically affect a person's quality of life. We work closely with a team of fellowship-trained specialists to provide each patient with a plan of care that best fits their needs.
As one of the highest volume centers for thyroid and parathyroid surgery, our team led by Gregory W. Randolph, MD, FACS, FACE, has extensive experience treating a variety of thyroid and parathyroid conditions. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits at the base of the neck, while your parathyroid glands are four tiny neck glands that control calcium levels.
With a strong emphasis and commitment to surgical safety, we utilize intraoperative nerve monitoring in every surgery we perform. We have used intraoperative monitoring in more than 3,500 thyroid and parathyroid surgical cases to date, making us one of the most experienced in the world.
Seeing thyroid and parathyroid patients at five locations throughout New England, our team has the expertise and state-of-the-art technology to successfully treat the entire breadth of conditions related to these areas.
Mass Eye and Ear has a radiofrequency ablation clinic, a joint program launched by the Thyroid and Parathyroid Endocrine Surgery Division and Department of Radiology, that shrinks small thyroid growths without surgery.
