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
"Dr. Fahey removed a very large pheochromocytoma. He is an amazing doctor! There may be a wait to see him, but the best doctors take their time with their patients. He is absolutely worth the wait! High recommended!"
"Professional and thorough"
"I went to Dr Zarnegar for a redo of a heller myotimy, disease is achalasia. I am so happy with the results. I can eat normally and swallow foods that in the past wouldn't go down or would get stuck. The staff and doctors working with Dr. Zarnegar were very professional and skilled at what they do. I am so happy with the results. The recovery was so much shorter than the first myotimy I had performed( at a different hospital). If you have achalasia this is the team you want working on you. Highly skilled, proffesional and all around good people."
