Thyroid Cancer, Nodule and Disease Care at Nuvance Health: Why Choose Us?
You have access to a team that includes a thyroid cancer and disease specialist who is fellowship-trained in endocrine surgery. This level of training gives you access to advanced procedures that are not widely available in the region. The team works together to deliver the right treatments with the careful attention you deserve. Highlights of our program include:
Diagnosis and assessment:
We hold ourselves to high care standards, so you receive an accurate diagnosis and appropriate care. A variety of techniques enable us to assess abnormal growths, including blood tests to evaluate hormone levels. Your evaluation may include a neck ultrasound, which is an imaging test using soundwaves.
We consider your unique situation and develop a personalized care plan, which may or may not include surgery. Thyroid nodules typically don’t need surgery, but thyroid cancers often do. The surgeon explains your options, including risks and benefits, so you feel confident about the care you’re receiving.
Experience with other rare endocrine disorders:
The team specializes in treating other types of endocrine tumors, some of which are rare. You receive trusted care that reflects current research. Learn more about endocrine neoplasia.
For thyroid nodules, ongoing monitoring enables us to detect small changes that might require additional testing or treatment. You may also need monitoring after cancer surgery to check for new growths.
You receive monitoring at a convenient location. If you have an endocrinologist with whom you prefer to work, we are available as necessary to answer questions. If you do not have an endocrinologist, the team may continue seeing you.
