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 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 surgery program at Weill Cornell Medicine, explains why patients should turn to its team of experts, which specializes in minimally-invasive surgical techniques.
What Our Patients Are Saying
"This was my first visit. Dr. Fahey was very nice and helpful. He listened to my problem very carefully and explained everything very clearly. I was very satisfied when I left his office."
"I have been treated by Dr. Kumar for at least five years, I travel several hours to be treated for a rare medical condition. I consider her to be the best in her field, this is coming from someone who has gone to top specialists my entire life. She is a busy lady but she does find the time to connect with you. If you have some negative test results she will find the time to contact you. I highly recommend Dr. Kumar for Endocrine issues and also weight loss issues."
