Research & Education

Our philosophy of comprehensive and expert care delivered in a minimally invasive fashion extends beyond our work in the hospital. Our surgeons are active in research and education. We actively conduct research that examines the success of various operations/procedures and the impact that the procedure has had on our patients’ quality of life. Topics of active research include multi-institutional studies on the treatments of hyperparathyroidism, the impact of endocrine disorder on health care utilization and the value of standardization of care in patients with thyroid disease. Furthermore, we have assumed a local leadership role in the education and training of other medical colleagues. Our goal is to maintain an active role in the development of emerging treatments for endocrine diseases based on sound medical evidence.
