Jefferson Health

Hypothyroidism

If you have hypothyroidism, Jefferson specialists in endocrinology and metabolic diseases can provide expert evaluation and management of these conditions. Our endocrinologists diagnose and treat hormonal and glandular disorders involving the thyroid, pituitary, parathyroid and adrenal glands, as well as osteoporosis, other bone disorders, calcium metabolism and disorders of cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism.

Housed within our Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases, Jefferson's Thyroid Treatment Program offers a unique multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of certain thyroid disorders, including tumors. Treatment of suspicious thyroid growths usually requires you to see several different physicians individually and wait days or weeks before you have all the information you need. Our Program team consists of thyroid surgeons, nuclear medicine specialists, cytologists and researchers who can often streamline this process to just one office visit.
