What is Endocrine Surgery?

Endocrine surgery involves the removal of diseased glands from your body. Diseased glands can cause an imbalance of hormones, become overgrown or harbor cancer.


Hormones are chemical messengers that regulate many vital functions in your body, such as metabolism, growth, reproduction, and stress response.

Some of the glands that may require endocrine surgery are:

  • Thyroid gland
    This gland is located in your neck and produces thyroid hormone, which affects your energy level and metabolism.


  • Parathyroid glands
    These are four small glands near your thyroid that produce parathyroid hormone, which regulates your calcium metabolism.


  • Adrenal glands
    These are two glands above your kidneys that produce several hormones, including adrenaline, cortisol, aldosterone, and sex hormones

Dr. John Abikhaled removed 2 of my parathyroids a month ago. I was nervous. He explained the procedure very well and I felt like I was in very capable and experienced hands. After surgery he let me know how things went and what all he did during surgery.
Other than a sore throat, I only needed 2 pain pills during my recovery. 3 weeks later, he peeled off my superglue-like bandage to reveal the excellent job he did of almost no noticeable incision!!! I was shocked! This man did an amazing job! I would highly recommend him to my best friends!!
