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.

Dr. Thomas Fahey, head of the Endocrine and Minimally Invasive Surgery program at Weill Cornell Medicine, explains why patients should turn to its team of experts, which specializes in minimally-invasive surgical techniques.
"I thought the Dr. was very thorough. Not only that what I liked most is that he try's to rule out every posibility so as not to operate. For a surgeon that is commendable."
"Dr. Fahey was beyond gentle his procedure of my thyroid biopsy. From when I was taken to the offices by his PA who spent so much time explaining the procedure to when Dr. Fahey come in the examination room it was just wonderful. I strongly refer Dr. Fahey & his professional team."
"I am going to have surgery for reflux. The minute I spoke to him I knew he would be the surgeon to operate. He’s super nice, extremely knowledgeable and I felt immediately at ease with having this surgery and him being the surgeon."
