About Dr Cino Bendinelli

Dr Cino Bendinelli, providing Endocrine surgery in Charlestown, NSW, Australia.

Endocrine Surgery

Endocrine surgery is undertaken by a General Surgeon or Head & Neck Surgeon. The endocrine system consists of several glands (groups of cells), in different parts of the body, which discharge hormones directly into the bloodstream. Hormones have many different important functions and ways of acting on organs of the body. During endocrine surgery procedures are performed on endocrine glands, usually to increase or decrease hormonal effects in the body. It often involves removing a tumour that has grown on or within an endocrine gland. Common endocrine surgery operations are removal of the thyroid gland located in the neck (thyroidectomy) and removal of the parathyroid glands located near the thyroid gland (parathyroidectomy). More rarely, surgery may remove one or both of the adrenal glands located near the kidneys (adrenalectomy).
