Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's Thyroid and Parathyroid Center is a specialized unit where patients can receive diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of thyroid and parathyroid conditions, such as:
- Thyroid nodules
- Adrenal conditions
We offer specialized care for patients with thyroid nodules at our Thyroid Nodule Clinics in Boston and Needham. Patients receive a full consultation with one of our endocrinologists or endocrine surgeons, and have access to ultrasounds and biopsies if recommended. Specialized genetic testing is also offered when appropriate. Medical and/or surgical follow-up care is scheduled following the initial consultation.
