Learning More About Thyroid Disorders

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck that releases hormones that control the body’s metabolism. The thyroid releases hormones regulate a range of bodily functions. Many thyroid disorders involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. Thyroid specialists at the Atlantic Health Thyroid Center can help patients manage and treat thyroid disorders, including proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Thyroid Disorders We Treat

Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism

Patients with hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are evaluated, followed by suitable diagnostic work up and treatment. The service includes management of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism in pregnant women.

Parathyroid Disorders

Patients with hypercalcemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism, or parathyroid adenomas are evaluated by our medical team. We provide appropriate diagnostic work up and treatment that includes medical treatment or surgical consultation.

Thyroiditis

Thyroiditis is an inflammation of the thyroid gland. It may be painful and tender when caused by an infection or trauma, or painless when caused by an autoimmune condition or medications.

Thyroid Nodules and Thyroid Cancer

Patients with thyroid nodules are examined by our medical team and, if needed, by our thyroid surgeons. We have vast experience on the operations of thyroid nodule and thyroid cancer and are available for the surgical consultation.

Warning signs or symptoms of thyroid cancer:

  • Swelling in the neck

  • Hoarseness or other voice changes that do not go away
