Thyroid Tumor Program

August 11, 2016


Our Thyroid Tumor Program was formed in 2012 in an effort to improve the care and outcomes of children with thyroid tumors. Our main goals are to provide best-in-class care for children and young adults with thyroid tumors in an optimal and consistent way, track patient outcomes related to thyroid tumors to refine and improve management of patients with these diseases, and engage patients and families throughout the care management and longitudinal follow-up process to learn about their ongoing experience with these conditions.

The program is staffed by a multidisciplinary core team of pediatric endocrinologists, surgeons, pathologists, hematologists-oncologists, radiologists, anesthesiologists, nurses and many more. The team is dedicated to the full recovery of children and young adults with thyroid tumors and related diseases. Watch the video below to learn more about our program.
