The Thyroid Program includes the Upstate Thyroid Cancer Program and the Thyroid Center.

The Upstate Thyroid Cancer Program

The Upstate Thyroid Cancer Program provides comprehensive care to patients with all types of thyroid cancer.

The team consists of:
  • Endocrinologists
  • Thyroid Surgeons
  • Nuclear medicine physicians
  • Oncologists
  • Pathologists

There are outpatient sessions in which an endocrinologist and thyroid surgeon see patients together to determine the best treatment option for each patient. Nuclear medicine physicians and pathologists are available for immediate consultation. We hold a monthly interdisciplinary conference to discuss the management of patients with thyroid cancer and other thyroid diseases.

The Thyroid Center

The Thyroid Center consists of board-certified endocrinologists who are experts in the evaluation and management of diseases of the thyroid. They manage benign thyroid diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, and multinodular goiters.

Our Center utilizes thyroid ultrasonography machines to aid in the management of thyroid nodular diseases. Our endocrinologists, in conjunction with our cytopathologist, perform ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspirations of thyroid nodules.
