Thyroid & Parathyroid Surgery

BSSNY follows the team approach to the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. We believe in a close partnership with the patient’s personal physicians to ensure seamless care of the patient.


Because of the very nature of thyroid and parathyroid disorders, arriving at an accurate diagnosis and timely treatment involves many other specialists such as:

  • Radiologists
  • Radiation therapists (experts in treating disorders with radiation)
  • Endocrinologists (experts in the treatment of disorders involving glands producing hormones)
  • Head and neck surgeons
  • Nuclear medicine specialists (experts in the use of radioisotopes to image and treat disorders of the glands)
  • Cytopathologists (pathologists expert at looking at single cells and diagnosing cancer)


Our specialists work together to provide optimal management of the many and complex diseases of these glands. Since there can be differences of opinion regarding certain treatment regimens, especially for thyroid cancer, our team of experts will design an individualized, patient-centered plan. This will be tailored to each patient’s risk profile to achieve the best possible outcome, both in terms of cure, adverse effects, and quality of life. Thyroid cancer is curable in the vast majority of patients when detected early and treated appropriately.
