Endocrinology and endocrine surgery

We treat patients with a range of disorders of the endocrine (hormonal) system such as the thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands.

We also have a specialist isolation room for patients with thyroid cancer who need radioactive iodine therapy.

We diagnose and treat people with conditions including:

  • pituitary disease
  • growth and puberty disorders
  • adrenal disease including adrenal cancer
  • neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) including those of the pancreas and bowel
  • thyroid disorders such as nodules, goitres, hyper and hypothyroidism (over and underactive thyroid) and thyroid cancer
  • reproductive disorders
  • parathyroid diseases including parathyroid cancer
  • severe obesity.

We offer a wide range of surgery, from minimally invasive day operations to major cancer surgery. Our key services include surgery for:

  • all thyroid diseases, including nodules, neck lumps, cancer, Graves' disease and thyroiditis
  • under- or overactive thyroid (parathyroid) and parathyroid cancer
  • adrenal cancer and conditions such as Cushing's and Conn's
  • rare and genetic diseases including Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN 1 and MEN2).
