Endocrine Procedures at
Rutland General Surgery
Your endocrine system is a complex network of glands that produces the hormones that control many of the most important functions of your body. These hormones affect your metabolism, energy level, reproductive system, growth and development, and your body’s response to injury and stress.
If you are suffering from an endocrine disorder, you can trust the surgeons at Rutland Regional to provide the treatment you need to help your body’s systems function effectively — so you can feel better, faster.
Our surgeons have extensive training and experience in treating patients with endocrine conditions such as:
- Thyroid cancer
- Benign thyroid disorders, including goiter and nodules
- Parathyroid disease
- Adrenal disorders
- Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1/2A/2B
- Pancreatic disorders
Your surgeon will conduct a thorough evaluation of your condition and recommend the most effective treatment plan tailored to meet your individual needs. Because your comfort is our priority, our endocrine and surgical specialists use minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to get you back on your feet sooner.
Our surgeons can perform some of the diagnostic endocrine procedures in a convenient, relaxed office setting. Office-based procedures include:
- Fine needle aspiration
- Ultrasound-guided biopsies
- Advanced molecular testing of thyroid nodules
