The new Section of Endocrine Surgery will provide specialized treatment for patients with a wide range of endocrine diseases including diabetes, Cushing’s syndrome, Grave’s disease, goiters, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and adrenal and thyroid cancers among other conditions. As one of the leading academic health systems in region, Cooper’s physicians have expertise and practice in more than 75 specialties. More than 7,000 patients annually are transferred to Cooper from area hospitals for treatment of complex illnesses and injuries by its specialists.
