The endocrine surgery program at the University of North Carolina provides comprehensive care of the patient with tumors of the adrenal, parathyroid, thyroid, and endocrine pancreas. In addition to our surgeons we provide a true multidisciplinary approach involving Endocrinologists, Otolaryngologists, Nuclear Medicine physicians, and Medical Oncologists.

We have available all of the latest technology for treatment of these tumors and are supported by a full Cancer Center and University Medical Center. In addition our education and research missions lay the foundation for better care of the next generations of patients.
