Department Of
Endocrine Surgery

Endocrine Surgery is a relatively modern and quite an advanced medical speciality that has garnered pace in the last two decades for treating various anomalies and health conditions related to endocrine glands.

We all know that hormones play a crucial role in both our physical and mental wellbeing and they are produced by many parts in the human body. However, the group of major glands that form the endocrine system include – thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pituitary, hypothalamus and some neuroendocrine glands that secrete hormones for triggering a specific response in other cells of the body. Hormones are like chemical messengers that get secreted directly into blood for aiding in countless number of bodily processes and functions like appetite regulation, growth, fluid balance, weight control et al and any amount of discrepancies in these can play a havoc with the health.

The most common endocrine disorders that are being vastly reported these days belong to the malfunctioning of thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, thymus, pancreatic and breast. Contrary to the belief, not all endocrine disorders would need a surgical intervention, as many can be managed with the help of medications.

However, in severe cases an expert endocrine surgeon is required to restore the proper functioning of the gland and to regulate the hormonal disorders. The Department of Endocrine Surgery at Dr Rela Institute & Medical Centre caters to the patients suffering from endocrine related medical conditions and aids them in finding a solace from many chronic ailments.
