About the department
The Department of Endocrine Surgery at the Vivantes Humboldt Hospital focuses on diseases of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. Highly developed operational methods, exceptional experience of conducting more than 8000 interventions and neuromonitoring guarantee optimal and sparing treatment. The head of the department is Dr. med.
In most cases, the surgeries are performed through a small incision of the skin in the neck by using devices for blood vessel and tissue coagulation("seamless surgery"). Each surgical intervention is performed with the help of a binocular loupe, as well as a system for protecting the nerves of the vocal cords (neuromonitoring). In the presence of small nodes or parathyroid adenomas, surgeries are performed in a minimally invasive way with video-assisted administration. For interventions on the parathyroid glands intraoperative determination of parathyroid hormone is used.
Spectrum of surgical treatment includes:
- All benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid gland
- Basedow's disease
- Autoimmune thyroiditis
- Struma in the elderly
- Children surgeries
- Repeated interventions (secondary and multiple interventions)
- Interventions in the so-called "diving goiter" (displacement in the chest)
- Diseases of parathyroid glands with benign and malignant neoplasms
- Primary hyperparathyroidism

- Parathyroid gland diseases in complex endocrine disorders (multiple endocrine neoplasia)
