The Endocrine Surgery Program at University of Wisconsin Department of Surgery has been providing nationally recognized care and innovative surgical services to its patients for more than a decade.

The Endocrine Surgery Program is a collaborative effort that unites several specialties to provide the best possible treatment plan for patients. Our center, located within University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC), includes a multidisciplinary thyroid clinic involving endocrinologists and pathologists as well as surgeons and nurse practitioners who manage your endocrine concerns. The patient plays a crucial role in his or her treatment, working side by side with physicians to determine an individualized treatment program.

Endocrine surgeons in our department are highly specialized and have completed rigorous training fellowships in the field of endocrine surgery and dedicate their clinical and research efforts to endocrine diseases. Our surgeons have performed thousands of endocrine operations over the past decade. Over 700 of these operations performed in the last year. In a long tradition of groundbreaking efforts, UW endocrine surgeons were the first in the state of Wisconsin to use minimally invasive techniques in endocrine operations. Their novel approaches and techniques generated tremendous outcomes for endocrine surgery patients.
