At UT Health San Antonio, we treat all forms of thyroid disorders through compassionate care, advanced research and specialty expertise.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck which secretes hormones controlling the body’s metabolism. Thyroid disorders are typically caused by growths, diseases or tumors which cause too much hormone (hyperthyroidism) or too little hormone (hypothyroidism) to be secreted.

Board-certified thyroid experts at UT Health Endocrinology provide reliable diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of all thyroid disorders. Our patients benefit from on-site lab testing and biopsy services as well as advanced imaging and scanning capabilities which provide the quick, accurate results used to develop effective treatment plans that are tailored to each patient’s specific health concerns.

Our patients with thyroid cancer benefit from our connection to the exceptional care provided by the oncologists at the Mays Cancer Center, South Texas’ only NCI-designated cancer center.

 Our customized treatment plans could include medicine, hormone therapies and surgery.
