Surgical Procedures - Endocrine Disorders, Adrenal Diseases, Parathyroid Diseases, Thyroid Diseases

In addition to conventional operative approaches to the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands, we offer:

Endocrine Surgery at UCLA
  • Minimally Invasive Adrenal Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive (focused) Parathyroidectomy
  • Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy

Diagnostic studies

Current research indicates that the quality of endocrine tumor imaging, particularly as regards ultrasound and nuclear medicine studies, is highly operator-dependent.

In addition to standard radiographic techniques, such as computed tomography (CT or CAT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we offer:

Thyroid imaging

  • Thyroid ultrasound and lymph node evaluation
  • Whole body scanning
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) and PET/CT scanning

Parathyroid imaging

  • Parathyroid ultrasound
  • Parathyroid sestamibi and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)

Adrenal imaging

  • Meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scanning
  • Fluorine-18 DOPA PET imaging

Diagnostic procedures

  • Ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy – more
  • Selective adrenal venous sampling

Multimodal therapy for endocrine cancers

  • Radioiodine ( 131I) ablation
  • Targeted therapy for advanced thyroid cancers, including tyrosine kinase inhibitors
  • External beam radiation therapy for locally invasive thyroid cancers
