Endocrine surgery is an important and delicate sub-specialty which focuses on treatment of endocrine gland including thyroid and parathyroid glands as well as adrenal glands which are located on top of kidneys. It is a relatively new sub-specialty which was developed to improve treatment results and techniques by gastric surgeons. Almost all endocrine surgeries are performed in general anesthesia and thanks to latest techniques recovery rate in modern and high quality hospitals is very good. Recovery is followed by medication and control of certain hormone and blood marker levels regularly. This often requires regular appointments and blood work with your general practitioner.
