Our team of physicians at the Endocrine Tumor Center treats a large volume of patients with endocrine tumors in the Washington, D.C. region. Our experienced and board certified physicians practice multidisciplinary medicine in the treatment of these kinds of cancers.
Expertise in Treatment
Most endocrine tumors can be curable when caught early, but require aggressive treatment using surgery and/or chemotherapy and radiation. Our Center is also one of the first to use targeted medical chemotherapy, which involves the use of specialized drugs to inhibit proteins that cause the cancer to grow.
Our physicians also have written a widely-used text for both physicians and patients about endocrine and thyroid tumors, and are considered nationally renowned experts in the treatment of endocrine-related disease.
Multidisciplinary Tumor Board
At our Center, a multidisciplinary tumor board meets to discuss new cases and diagnostic and treatment options. Endocrinologists, radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists attend this tumor board, and their combined experience results in optimal diagnostic and treatment options for patients.
