Our physicians specialize in the surgical treatment of thyroid tumors and other thyroid conditions, hyperparathyroidism, and endocrine tumors of the adrenal and pancreas. New patients can usually be accommodated within two weeks - sooner if necessary - and we accept most major insurance plans.
For our patients' convenience, Dr. Heller has also have a satellite office in Long Island.
Our services include:
- 23-hour stay for nearly all thyroid surgeries - simple overnight stay allows patients to recover at home.
- Minimally Invasive Parathyroidectomy - often performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia with sedation.
- Intraoperative monitoring of parathyroid hormone levels during all parathyroid operations to help assure successful surgery.
- Radio guided parathyroid surgery in selected cases (Dr. Karen Hiotis).
- Laparoscopic Adrenal Surgery (Dr. Leon Pachter and Dr. Jennifer Ogilvie).
- Physician-performed thyroid and parathyroid ultrasonography - available during the initial consultation with ultrasound-guided needle biopsy and immediate interpretation when appropriate (Dr. Keith Heller, Dr. Jennifer Ogilvie and Dr. Kepal Patel).
