Dr. Hakkarainen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hakkarainen "I am a general surgeon with advanced fellowship training in endocrine surgery at Mount Sinai and Mount Sinai Beth Israel hospitals in New York. I have experience in the treatment of all manner of thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal gland diseases. I offer minimally-invasive and remote-access (hidden scar) surgery for the thyroid and parathyroid, including endoscopic transoral and robot-assisted approaches. When I'm not working, I enjoy technical SCUBA diving in Puget Sound and Lake Washington, alpine climbing (especially on Mount Rainier), woodworking, wheel-thrown pottery, reading history, and just about any outdoor activity. My wife, three kids and I enjoy camping regularly. I love helping expose them to the natural world, develop new skills, and helping them develop a passion for the outdoors and confidence in their ability to try things."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Hakkarainen "My role is to help patients understand their disease or condition, as well as what treatment options are available and then to partner with them to help determine the best next steps in care. 

This personalized plan is certainly influenced by the medical and surgical details of their condition, but more importantly it is also based on their personal values, goals of care, and life situation."
