The Northern Alberta Endocrine Surgery Centre
The North Alberta Endocrine Surgery Centre at the University of Alberta Hospital specializes in the treatment of endocrine disorders with particular attention to minimally invasive parathyroid surgery, complex thyroid cancer cases, and inherited or familial endocrine diseases such as multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN). Through the Centre, patients are able to access assessment, referrals for necessary tests, pre-operative teaching, surgical treatment and post-operative care. If it appears that a patient could benefit from other services such as physiotherapy, nutritional teaching or social work, these may also be accessible through our centre. Patients referred to the Centre who are ill but not appropriate for surgical treatment will receive nonsurgical treatment by one of our physicians or will be re-referred.
