Endocrine Surgery

About Our Endocrine Surgery Program

Specialists at Jersey Shore University Medical Center provide high quality care across the range of diseases of the thyroid parathyroid and adrenal glands. In the United States, there are only a few hundred subspecialists dedicated to endocrine surgery and Jersey Shore has one of the few programs in the state and offers expertise in minimally invasive surgical techniques, in addition to medical management and advanced surgical procedures.
