Endocrine Surgery
Endocrine specialists at the Dahab Specialized Hospital treat the group of glands in the body which secrete hormones, primarily the thyroid, the parathyroid, the adrenal and the pancreas. Where surgical treatment is necessary, endocrine surgery can be performed by experts in this field. Endocrine surgery is typically used to treat conditions such as thyroid cancer and problems of the pancreas.

Thyroid Cancer Operations
Thyroid cancer treatment at the Dahab Specialized Hospital covers all common types of thyroid cancer and also the spectrum of rare and genetic thyroid cancers, such as Medullary Thyroid Cancer in Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia MEN. The service provides removal of central neck lymph nodes and formal neck dissection in a functionally and cosmetically advantageous neck access. Where required we remove chest lymph nodes of thyroid cancer through a chest access. We liaise closely with the associate specialties involved in the all-round treatment of thyroid cancer.

Multidisciplinary Therapy of Thyroid Cancer
Every patient suspected of having thyroid cancer is handled through a multidisciplinary team with specialists in thyroid cancer therapy. This includes experts from endocrine surgery, nuclear medicine, endocrinology, histopathology, oncology and imaging as well as experienced cancer nurses.

Parathyroid Operations
The service provides surgical expertise in removal of parathyroid adenomas in a primary setting or redo. The standard approach is minimal access surgery after exact pre-operative localization. The service has expert experience in removal of ectopic (i.e. unusually located) parathyroid adenomas and multiple gland disease.

Parathyroid operations in renal failure (secondary hyperparathyroidism)
The services specialize in primary and redo surgical access to parathyroid glands in chronic renal failure. For this purpose elaborate pre-operative localization tools are used. Care around surgery is jointly done in close relationship with our colleagues in nephrology.

Adrenal Operations
We provide laparoscopic (keyhole) adrenalectomy (i.e. removal of the adrenal) as standard approach for removal of diseased adrenals. The service also offers various open approaches as required. There is expertise in treatment of adrenal tumors with endocrine activity such as Conn's disease, Cushing's disease and pheochromocytoma (i.e. catecholamine secreting tumors).
We also treat cancer of the adrenal by large operations (removal of multiple organs) and participate in studies for multimodal therapy of adrenal cancer.

Pancreas Operations
We provide laparoscopic (keyhole) and open surgery for endocrine tumors of the pancreas with hormone production such as insulinomas (i.e. tumors producing insulin), gastrinomas (tumors producing gastrin), and other rare neuro-endocrine pancreas tumours.

Operations in Genetic/Hereditary Disease
Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type I and type II require a multitude of highly specific operations. We also possess expertise in ectopic (i.e. unusually located) tumours producing catecholamines such as pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas.
These rare tumours are usually found in patients with mutations of the SDH-gene complex. We also have experience with rare tumour syndromes such as hyperparathyroidism jaw tumour syndrome and others.
