Endocrinology

Specialized care is required when cancer affects the endocrine system

Roswell Park provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services to patients with benign and malignant endocrine tumors and conditions affecting the endocrine system. We manage and investigate a wide spectrum of hormone-producing tumors and related diseases of the thyroid, adrenal, parathyroid, pituitary and pancreas. Tumors of these organs sometimes result in excessive and unregulated hormone secretion and require attentive diagnosis and therapy. 

Dr. Sharma works with each patient to develop a customized treatment plan.

Cancers We Treat

Endocrinologists collaborate with surgeons, oncologists, radiologists and pathologists to provide the best possible care for patients with the following endocrine tumors:

  • Pituitary tumors
  • Thyroid nodules/cancer
  • Parathyroid adenoma
  • Adrenal gland tumors 
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) I and II
  • Neuroendocrine tumors like Insulinoma
  • Pancreatic islet cell tumors

Managing Endocrine Disorders 

Patients are closely monitored before, during and after treatment to effectively manage long-term health.

Cancer and the therapies used to treat it can disrupt the body's hormonal balance and cause long-term complications. Treating the tumor itself just isn't enough. We go beyond treatment by anticipating and managing side effects with a specific plan tailored to suit your needs. Endocrine disorders involve many areas of the body and can cause chronic medical issues, including:

  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Steroid induced hyperglycemia
  • Hypopituitarism
  • Hypo- and Hyperthyroidism
  • Adrenal insufficiency and Cushing disease
  • Hypogonadism
  • Hyperparathyroidism
  • Osteoporosis
