Endocrine surgery is a special field of surgery that focuses on the management of problems (principally benign and malignant tumors) of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands, as well as endocrine tumors of the pancreas and gastrointestinal tract. The goals of the Section of Endocrine Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center are to provide excellent patient care and advance knowledge of diseases of these glands through research and education.
The clinical focus of the Section of Endocrine Surgery is to employ Minimally Invasive Techniques to provide superb care. To this end, thyroid and parathyroid surgery is performed under local or regional anesthesia using small incisions. Adrenal tumors are approached via laparoscopic or robotic techniques whenever possible.
We emphasize strong collaboration within our teams to bring a unique multidisciplinary care that is patient centric and novel. This enables us to work together to conduct collaborative research needed to develop and improve our expertise. Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of thought leaders and practicing researchers dedicated to the studies of tumor biology, who continue to be well published and highly respected within the community.

Talking about Brendan Finnerty, M.D.
"Dr. Finnerty performed surgery to remove ½ of my thyroid. From the initial consultation to my 3 month post-op visit, he was so thorough in his explanations. I walked away truly understanding the risk/reward factors and knew I was in excellent hands."

Talking about Thomas J. Fahey, III, M.D.
"Outstanding Doctor with a very professional staff. In dealing with my medical issues he was to the point and very informative as to how the treatment would be from the initial stage to the completion. His staff had me processed in a very organized and expedient manner. I found D Fahey to be very personable and I came away with the feeling that he generally cares about his patients. To put it in plain language, he is a “good guy”. My thanks to Dr. Fahey and his wonderful staff. FShea"
