Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Sosa "As the leader of the endocrine neoplasia diseases group at Duke my goal is to bring together physicians from many specialties who care for thyroid parathyroid and adrenal problems in order to make it easy and convenient for patients. I am an endocrine surgeon and surgical oncologist and my clinical practice and research are focused around thyroid cancer. I chose this specialty because patients live with their disease and I look forward to getting to know and follow them over time. I am challenged by operating on many different parts of the body and performing novel techniques such as minimally invasive parathyroidectomy and posterior retroperitoneoscopic adrenalectomy. While I spend most of my time in the operating room I also direct clinical trials using new drugs for patients who previously did not have treatment options. Making their hope a reality motivates me to work harder."

Had my first Thyroid cancer surgery here and she completely missed a cancerous lymph node my endo had emphasized.
