The thyroid plays an important role in regulating the body's metabolism. Virtually every tissue in the body is affected or regulated by thyroid hormone. It regulates the brain and nerve development and function, skin, hair, eyes, heart, and intestine function.
If your physician has suggested that you see a surgeon for treatment of your thyroid condition, you may wonder what type of surgeon is best for you. General surgery is a discipline that requires knowledge of a broad spectrum of diseases that can occur in almost any organ or body system that might require surgical treatment. A General Surgeon can treat hundreds of diseases, ranging from benign tumors and cancers to injuries, from gastrointestinal problems to thyroid issues.
