Endocrine Cancer Program physicians and Head and Neck Cancer Program physicians are dedicated to deepening our understanding of thyroid cancer and other endocrine malignancies. Through research, clinical trials and a commitment to patient care, they are helping to develop better therapies and more effective surgical techniques.

Cancers of the endocrine system include many diseases that are very treatable as well as some that are difficult to cure. The common denominator for all endocrine tumors is the importance of working with a team of physicians who offer a high degree of specialization. The Endocrine Cancer Program team includes endocrinologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, endocrine surgeons and head and neck surgeons who treat the following conditions:

  • Thyroid cancer and parathyroid cancer
  • Adrenal cancer
  • Neuroendocrine tumors
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia
  • Hyperparathyroidism

Treating Thyroid Cancer and Endocrine Tumors

The Clinical Cancer Center's hub model builds the entire care experience around patients. Dedicated program coordinators answer questions, address concerns, coordinate treatment and help you along in your journey.

The physicians in the Endocrine Cancer Program concentrate on treating thyroid cancer and other endocrine tumors. They care for and provide follow-up for a large number of these patients every year. The team's extensive experience and in-depth knowledge ensures that every patient has access to the most effective treatment options, including clinical trials.

Second Opinions for Endocrine Cancer

We also offer second opinions for those diagnosed with endocrine cancer. Second opinions provide patients with the reassurance that a diagnosis is accurate and that they know all of the treatment options available to them. Learn more about our Cancer Second Opinion Program.

Clinical Trials

The Endocrine Cancer Program team is actively involved in clinical research to develop improved treatments for thyroid cancer and other diseases. Learn more about the clinical trials currently in progress for patients with endocrine disorders at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin.
