About

Our endocrine surgery service provides secondary level thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal surgical services to our local community and referring hospitals.

We are the largest endocrine surgical service in the UK and perform more thyroidectomies, parathyroidectomies and adrenalectomies than anywhere else in the UK. We also offer re-operative thyroid and parathyroid surgery, as well as robotic thyroid and parathyroid surgery.

Conditions and treatments

Our endocrine surgery service treats thyroid disease, including goitre, thyroid lumps and thyroid cancer. We offer investigation and treatment for hyperparathyroidism and adrenal tumours, as well as any relevant blood tests and scans.

Your inpatient stay Inpatients

You may need to stay at one of our hospitals to have a procedure or receive treatment, either overnight as an inpatient or during the day as a day patient. Ahead of your inpatient stay, you will usually need to attend a pre-operative assessment appointment.
