Here are some of the most common reasons your doctor might encourage you to seek out an experienced thyroid and parathyroid surgeon like Dr. Teresa Kroeker.

If there are any suspected nodules or growths that may warrant surgery you may be directed to see a thyroid or parathyroid surgeon

If the growth or nodule is very large, is continuing to grow, or is causing  discomfort when swallowing or while breathing, surgery may be recommended to correct these symptoms

An ultrasound and fine needle aspiration of any suspected nodules or growths on these glands may be required. Dr. Kroeker performs these tests in her office at the time of the appointment. Biopsy results can indicate whether surgical or non-surgical treatment is recommended.
