The Endocrine Surgery Program at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics has been providing nationally recognized care and innovative services to its patients for over a decade. In the last five years alone the Endocrine Program surgeons have performed more than 2,200 operations of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands.


It was here at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics that minimally-invasive techniques used in most endocrine surgeries today were introduced to the state of Wisconsin.
