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 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

Beth Brill
Talking about Rasa Zarnegar, M.D.

"Dr. Rasa Zarnegar is probably the nicest doctor I have ever met. He is so easy to talk to and seems like he has all the time in the world. I had acid reflux surgery performed by him this past November. Everything went very smoothly and he was readily available to talk to before and after surgery. Sometimes the top doctor in the field ends ups being the nicest. I recommend Dr. Z without any hesitation."
