Our Program

At Keck Medicine of USC, we work to lead the way in diagnosing and managing diseases of the thyroid and parathyroid glands. These two types of endocrine glands are located in the front of the neck and make important hormones for the body. The thyroid is a single butterfly-shaped gland with two halves (or lobes) that create hormones that affect metabolism. The parathyroids are small glands located next to the thyroid. Our multidisciplinary team of surgeons, endocrinologists, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and nurses is committed to providing the highest quality care, using the most advanced technology available.

Patients with thyroid hormone imbalance may face hormonal and metabolic symptoms, such as changes in weight, energy, concentration, digestion, hair and skin. Our team is committed to working with you beforehand, to determine the best course of treatment, as well as after treatments, such as thyroid surgery, are concluded.

Our Approach

We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to treating thyroid and parathyroid disorders. Our high-volume practice ensures that you receive treatment from experienced endocrinologists and surgeons.

We use technologies such as genetic testing for thyroid nodules and parathyroid CT scans to individualize your treatment plan. Our surgeons have expertise in minimally invasive techniques that lead to shorter surgeries, faster recovery, higher success rates — and more satisfied patients.

Our program takes an integrated team approach to thyroid care and has brought together a group of nationally recognized experts in endocrinology, surgery, oncology, radiology, pathology, nuclear medicine and laboratory medicine, who specialize in the diagnosis and management of thyroid diseases. This expertise includes evaluating thyroid nodules with cutting-edge molecular tests, as well as diagnosing new and recurrent thyroid cancer. We make use of one of the finest endocrine laboratories in the U.S. that specializes in thyroid testing. Working with colleagues across disciplines, the team leverages its expertise to manage even the most difficult cases.

On the day of your visit, team members will focus on your particular needs, depending on your condition and phase of your care, including:

  • Thyroid nodule evaluation
  • Surgical evaluation
  • Thyroid disorder evaluation
  • Thyroid cancer treatment
  • Graves’ disease treatment
