Your thyroid is the small, wing-shaped organ that is located at the base of your neck. These glands release hormones that influence your body’s metabolism, as well as other vital bodily processes like breathing, heart rate, and muscle strength. These thyroid glands are susceptible to a variety of medical maladies, including goiters, cancers, and nodules that can impact the production of these valuable hormones. As a specialized endocrinologist doctor, Dr. Kroeker carries out precise thyroid and parathyroid surgeries and other treatments that address these health concerns and ensure the healthy functioning of the thyroid glands.
