     Our team of skilled surgeons is prepared to offer the most excellent standard of care, utilizing the most recent methods and tools to produce the best results for our patients. The following are some of the frequent procedures our Endocrine Surgery Department regularly performs:

  • Thyroid surgery : Located at the front of the neck, the thyroid gland creates hormones that control metabolism. A thyroidectomy is surgery to remove all or a portion of the thyroid gland. It can be required if the patient has a thyroid nodule, thyroid cancer, or other thyroid-related issues.

  • Parathyroid surgery : The parathyroid glands, situated in the neck next to the thyroid gland and responsible for producing hormones that control blood calcium levels, must be removed. The removal of one or more parathyroid glands is accomplished through parathyroid surgery, commonly referred to as a parathyroidectomy. This can be required if the patient has a parathyroid tumor or hyperparathyroidism.

  • Adrenal surgery:The adrenal glands, situated above each kidney, are responsible for producing hormones that control the body's reaction to stress, blood pressure, and other processes. Surgery to remove all or a portion of the adrenal gland is referred to as an adrenalectomy. This might be required if the patient has an adrenal tumor or other issues relating to the adrenals.

  • Pancreatic surgery:The pancreas is a vital organ situated behind the stomach. It produces enzymes that aid food digestion and hormones controlling blood sugar levels. A pancreatectomy, sometimes called pancreatic surgery, removes all or part of the pancreas. This can be required if the patient has a pancreatic tumor or other issues relating to the pancreas. 

  • Breast Surgery: Medicana Hospitals' Breast Surgery Department provides a wide range of treatments to diagnose and treat breast illnesses.
