Stanford’s Endocrine Cancer (Tumor) Program offers highly specialized surgical expertise for newly diagnosed or recurrent (returned) thyroid cancer. Thyroid surgery is typically the first treatment for thyroid cancer. We also perform surgery for some benign (noncancerous) thyroid problems such as thyroid nodules and hyperthyroidism.
Because the thyroid is in a delicate area of the neck, experience is particularly important for this surgery. Our team performs a large number of thyroid surgeries, which gives us the expertise to provide better outcomes for you. Our team also has expertise in related surgery, including lymph node dissection, for cancer that has spread.
