About Us

Weill Cornell Medicine’s endocrine surgeons and specialized staff aim to provide comprehensive care for a full range of diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid gland, adrenal gland, as well as endocrine tumors of the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas – from the more common and benign disorders to relatively rare cancers. 

Our experts provide personalized care for each patient from the first visit, through surgery and follow-up care after surgery. With our team of dedicated surgeons, professional support staff, and physicians in nuclear medicine and pathology, we can deliver medical options that are tailored to each patient's needs.

Our program offers cutting-edge treatments that reduce recovery time and offer patients options for surgical approach.

Using minimally invasive techniques in parathyroid and thyroid surgery, our team aims to reduce the appearance of neck scars. Adrenal and pancreatic surgery is routinely approached laparoscopically using a thin, lighted tube inserted through small incisions, which allows most patients to shorten their recovery time and more quickly return to normal daily activity.

In addition to providing outstanding individualized clinical care, we are committed to advancing the field of Endocrine and Minimally Invasive Surgery through research and education with the goal of finding better treatments that not only cure patients, but also improve their quality of life.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Talking about Rasa Zarnegar, M.D.

"From the front desk everyone was very professional and very polite the place looks great and the doctors are wonderful. I did wait a little bit before I could see doctor Zarnegar but I didn't mind. My only issue was with the room temperature it was a little bit too low but I love the place and I highly recommend it."

"Dr. Finnerty is one of the rare doctors that takes time to actually listen to you and offer sound advice. He has great bedside manner and is quick to assist patients who have follow up questions. Highly recommend him if you ever have any appendix issues!"
