Endocrinologists are physicians who specialize in the endocrine system. This system is made up of glands that regulate the production and distribution of hormones; and also the chemicals that regulate our digestive, growth and waste systems.
Nuclear Medicine Specialists are physicians and physicists who run diagnostic imaging tests on patients, using small amounts of radioactive materials. The combination of diagnostic imaging and radioactive materials make it easier to see complications or masses on imaging films, allowing for a more precise diagnosis and treatment plan.
Surgeons are physicians who are trained to perform surgery on different parts of the human body. The surgeons who are a part of the Endocrine Tumor Center are board-certified and perform large numbers of these surgeries every year.
Otolaryngologists are ear, nose and throat physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders and diseases of the head and neck. The otolaryngologists who are a part of the Endocrine Tumor Center are board-certified in the treatment of these types of tumors.
Radiation Oncologists use targeted doses of radiation to shrink tumors and treat cancer. The department of radiation oncology at Washington Cancer Institute provides inpatient and outpatient radiation therapy services for cancer patients.
Radiologists are physicians who read diagnostic images to find evidence of tumors, masses or other forms of disease. The radiologists at the Endocrine Tumor Center are board-certified, and have many years of experience in diagnosing endocrine tumors and endocrine-based cancers.
Pathologists are physicians who examine biopsies for cellular evidence of cancer. The pathologists at the Endocrine Tumor Center are board-certified, and have many years of experience at diagnosing these types of tumors.
