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

"Not only was Dr Finnerty a nice very nice guy but everyone I had interactions with before I even met him were very friendly and professional and I felt very at home with everyone I was quite impressed with the whole experience"

Ed M.

"Dr Fahey was very patient and very clearly explained the procedure, a needle biopsy of the thyroid. I was very apprehensive but he calmed me down and I barely felt anything. His staff was very nice and his nurse practitioner, Erin, was very thorough and caring. My wife accompanied me for the visit and procedure and we both agreed that not only would we use him if surgery was necessary, but we would recommend him to anyone who needed a surgeon with his skills."

Talking about Rasa Zarnegar, M.D.

"I came in with a complex set of medical conditions and he looked at me as a whole person, was respectful, kind and thoughtful, and gave advice that made perfect sense to where I was physically. He took time with me, explained things clearly and answered my big list of questions. The office staff was great too, which really makes a difference!"
