Endocrine surgery refers to the surgical treatment of diseases of the endocrine glands in the body when surgery is indicated. Thyroid diseases (goiter, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves’ disease, thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancers), parathyroid diseases (hyperparathyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, and parathyroid gland cancers), diseases of adrenal glands (Cushing Syndrome, Addison Syndrome, Pheochromocytoma, Addison Syndrome, Incidentaloma, and adrenocortical cancers), and pancreatic surgical endocrine diseases (insulinoma, gastrinoma, VIPoma, Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome, and carcinoid syndrome) are evaluated by specialists in general surgery and endocrinology.

At the diagnosis stage, specialists in radiology and nuclear medicine join the team. Interventional methods are used when necessary. Needle biopsies are reliable methods to evaluate thyroid gland diseases.
