Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kroeker "The patient's trust given to the surgeon in the operating room is a privilege and comes with an incredible opportunity to repay that trust by improving the patient's quality of life. Dr. Kroeker's patients are well-informed and involved in the decision making process along with her guidance and expertise. She is committed to providing consistent, excellent surgical care to her patients. A fellowship-trained head and neck surgeon, Dr. Teresa Kroeker has advanced training in the surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid disease. This includes metastatic thyroid cancer in the central and lateral neck, as well as invasive thyroid cancer. During her head and neck surgery fellowship at Mt.

She also has experience in reoperative surgery for recurrent thyroid cancer and recurrent parathyroid disease."
