Thyroid diseases can affect your overall health: mood, weight, energy, sleep and concentration. The Vanderbilt Thyroid Center offers comprehensive treatment for thyroid conditions, including thyroid cancer, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, goiter and thyroid nodules. We provide thyroid biopsies, testing, surgical and non-surgical procedures, and medical management for thyroid disorders.
Because thyroid disorders can involve different areas of the body, our thyroid specialists work together to evaluate your symptoms and provide treatment options that improve your well-being.
Our team of experts are specially trained to diagnose and treat thyroid disorders and advanced thyroid cancer. Our specialists from endocrinology, oncology, surgery, radiology and pathology meet biweekly in meetings called tumor boards. We review cases together and create a personalized treatment plan for each patient. You can be confident that our team will meet your needs.
As an academic medical center, our researchers are dedicated to pioneering new and more effective treatments. Our doctors and other team members help develop the treatment guidelines others follow. We serve on committees of the International Thyroid Oncology Group, American Thyroid Association and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN). We also offer clinical trials (research studies) for advanced thyroid cancer. You may have access to treatments before they are widely available.
