Endocrine Surgery

Endocrine surgery refers to operations on one or more of the endocrine glands. These glands secrete

hormones

into the bloodstream, and have an important influence over the functions of almost all cells in the body. Endocrine surgeons are surgeons with special expertise and training in operations on a number of the

endocrine glands

including the

thyroid

gland, the

parathyroid

glands, the

adrenal glands

, the endocrine

pancreas

, and some neuroendocrine glands. There are a number of other endocrine glands and these are treated by different surgeons. They include the

pituitary

gland in the brain, which secretes various stimulating hormones and which is treated by neurosurgeons, and the ovaries, which secrete sex hormones and which are treated by gynaecologists.

Endocrine surgeons

work closely with their medical colleagues (

endocrinologists

) who are often the doctors who will be responsible for both the initial diagnosis and investigation of endocrine disorders. Endocrine surgeons also work with nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, pathologists, geneticists and anaesthetists.
