The attention of the doctors in the Endocrine Surgery Division is mainly aimed at surgical illnesses regarding the: Thyroid, Parathyroid, Adrenal Glands, Endocrine neoplasms of the Pancreas and the Gastro-Intestinal Apparatus.

For all these conditions, it is vital to carry out a preliminary study phase through biochemical and instrumental examinations, as well as functional tests carried out at the same time or in order of importance.

The diagnostic evaluation of these illnesses is therefore reached in collaboration with other specialised teams, made up of endocrinologists, radiologists, nuclear medics and anatomopathologists, with whom the surgical treatment and any other complementary therapies are discussed and then formulated.

The operations carried out for diseases of these organs are done by using traditional techniques, but also – in certain cases – mini-invasive and video-assisted methods.
