Endocrine and Thyroid Cancer Care and Treatment Program

UPMC Hillman Cancer Center is home to a team of endocrine cancer experts committed to excellence in patient care. We work closely to review your specific case and design a treatment plan tailored to fit your unique needs.

Our multidisciplinary treatment methods may include genetic testing for multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) and von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) syndromes.

We also offer genetic counseling and education about these disorders. And, we're happy to provide disease management guidance to your other doctors as well.

Leaders in Endocrine Cancer Research

Our surgeons and scientists are also leaders in clinical research in the field of endocrine surgery. We established or verified many of the endocrine surgery techniques and care standards in use today.

Our scholarly publications allow us to share our knowledge with colleagues around the world.
